Spring is upon us...


... and, as usual, it delivers a crushing blow. How, you ask? By hiding behind a blanket, no a fluffy ONE FOOT down comforter of snow. Bah. At least we'll have snow days... probably two of them.

tell me about it. 60 degrees on day, and two days later BAM!! A ass-load of snow.

but to redeem my evil ways, the magazines i work for came out with an article in this morning's issue about a new marketing campaign for, you guessed it, Chipotle. I think i'm borderline stalking those burritos. is that possible?

Huh. A blizzard on the first day of spring... that's usually the malarkey we're cursed with up in these parts. Mother Nature must've gotten her directions messed up. Happy digging out, and enjoy the snow days!

Yeah, we had a one big snowstorm back in November. That was it... I think we had one little storm that might have brought us about 3 inches in early Feb. Otherwise, we've been snow-free since November. This is what happens when we have a mild winter in the midwest. We pay for it big time in March and April. bleh.

We had our foot of snow last Monday, and then another four inches on Thursday. Today it was 30. I guess that is spring in Minnesota. =(

MPB:Yikes! How about all those tornadoes to the north of you (I think to the north?)???

jaek: yeah, yeah. I'm busted. So what. Guys go commando all the time. ;-)

r: I'm tempted to go stick a ruler out in the front yard... they keep saying we've got almost two feet. Ick. I like it when it's December, but not March!!

Whoa! A foot of snow! You know, I'd just love to have that here tomorrow so I could work from home again tomorrow :-)

Master Peebody said...

Yeah all in the north. Up in queensland. We don't get them in victoria.

Today it was nearly 50 in Boston. So I assume tomorrow it will rain frogs.
