Mother Nature

Dear Mother Nature,

I love the bit you did in the Year Without a Santa Claus. You certainly have a firm hand with those 2 boys of yours, Heatmizer and Snowmizer.

Anyway, what I wanted to talk to you about was today's weather on Cape Cod. You teased us with 5 perfectly snowman making inches of snow this morning after the kids got to school. Then you allowed it to rain. When I say rain, I mean RAIN.  There were about 2 inches of snow left by the time the girls got home from school. Not sledding material anymore because it was still RAINING. I went to a meeting tonight and on my way home noticed that the temp outside was 51 degrees. That is spring weather in Florida. I would have cherished the surprise warmth if not for the RAIN  that accompanied it. 

I took Gretel out for a pee a 1/2 hour ago and noticed there was no snow left AT ALL. And it is still RAINING and now we have about 35 mph winds blowing too. What did us Cape Codders do to piss you off so much today? Are  you exercising your power? Are you metapausal? Did your significant other tick you off? Was it those sons of yours arguing again?

What if I made you some brownies and we could get on with either spring or more winter. Please, I beg of you, no more of this teasing. I cannot stand the stress or the tears from 'where has the snow gone' questions. 

I am sure your choice in the matter will be obvious in the next few days. 

Sincerely "May stay in bed until May" Sue

51 degrees!!! We never got above 40 today, just outside Washington, DC!

But, a wet 51 degrees just sucks!!! Hope tomorrow is better.

I'd take some rain...maybe it would melt all the snow out here.

First question...
is METAPAUSAL similiar to MENAPAUSAL?

And second...

Would you rather have had 15" of the horrid white stuff?

At least you didn't have to dig a trench in your yard so your house wouldn't flood...

I'd love some rain, though.

We had the exact same weather yesterday, ICK! Now though, all the melt is frozen into linches of ice. Walking G-dog not fun.
