Hell Freezes Over

Some people I know liken where I live to hell. It's closer to heaven to me, but for the fun of it I'm going with the hell analogy.

Today is the first day of spring, or at least I think it is. I haven't checked a calendar to make sure. All week we had the most beautiful weather, whetting my appetite for the weekend. I couldn't wait to get off and planned to get some outdoor work done.

That was before I found out what was in store for us. This morning has been overcast and chilly. Now it is raining, but at least not freezing yet. Tonight we should expect the white stuff to come down, and more than a light dusting's worth. A possible 10" could accumulate. What?? How can that happen after a week like the one we just had, with another one just like it scheduled to begin on Monday?

It seems unfair to work next week after this. Sooner or later, I guess the weekend will be good for outdoor fun. For now, I'll just clean house and write.

Yep! My sentiments exactly.

How much snow did you get out your way, NitWit1? We're at 6" now, but snow is still falling steadily. The ground is so wet and still warm, though, so I don't expect it to stay. The power keeps going out, though. Not sure what's going on with that.

Do they say they started calling where you live "Hell", before or after your arrival. Maybe you worry the neighbors?

I don't think I'm ~that~ scary, lol.
