Spring Has (Not) Sprung (Yet)

So Mom wanted to enter this picture in the Simply Siamese Spring Contest. Except she wanted to tweek it a little. And never got around to it. And then found out that voting has started. But I digress. Anyway, today I needed to interrupt our regularly schedule T13 because we wanted to show you what's been going on around here the last couple of days.


On Monday, it was 50° or so here in the old Mitten State. The above picture made us all happy. Green grass, sunshine, smiling white dawg. You get the picture. We were SURE that spring was finally here. heh


Then look what happened Tuesday night - 6" of snow. This is a picture of one of the roads Mom takes to work. It's normally a 4 lane road, but the plows hadn't come through yet, so it was only 2 tracks each way. (And no, she does NOT recommend taking pictures while driving. ha ha)


Here she's going over the overpass - also normally 4 lanes.


Here is a giant pile of snow from a snowplow working on a parking lot. She liked the truck in there for comparison. Look how little it looks. She wanted to go offroading on the snowpile, but there were too many people around. hee hee


We're supposed to get more snow starting tomorrow. So, spring's not here yet. But we're going to keep looking at this picture of a very handsome, white dawg to keep our spirits up.


We hope you all have a great Thursday!

  14. Haven't you been told that "snow" is a 4 letter word, that's a bad word, and it shouldn't be used!? ;)

    To cheer you up after that chilly shock to your systems have a look at my 'sis 's belly move thanks to the kittens! ;)
