LOL! So true Andy!

Here is my back deck after I shovelled my way back from the garage. This was about an hour and a half ago. Since then we've had another inch or snow. Check out my poor tree.

So pretty, but don't ya hate when that happens?

We all know that we might get snow like that in April, but we don't have to like it.

Late season storms damage a lot of trees and bushes because they are already blooming. We had a Mother's Day snowstorm years ago that wrecked several trees in my backyard.

I'd be less p!ssed if it were the first April snow. We had a dump on the 1st too. This one is significantly worse though. I just HATE trying to negotiate the streets etc when it is this bad. And the parking lot at work is ridiculous.

No fun Alix. I hope the storm passes quickly and you guys get warmer weather soon. I hope your trees will be ok. On the bright side, if it was warm enough that the trees were blooming maybe that meams pesky bugs were hatching too. If that's the case then the snow should kill them off and maybe you'll have fewer oesky insects this year.

Good point PAG. The trees weren't QUITE blossoming but the leaf buds were visible. It has slowed down now and the trees seem to be shaking the piles off. Saying a prayer that the parking lot at work has been done!

Chill breezy all day, but the sun was out.

Hope you feel better soon, Babe! Great idea to work on some of your projects. I think keeping busy really helps.
