Oh Spring where art thou?

I have two Jonquils blooming. I thought this was a sure sign of Spring. It's also been in the mid to high 60's the last few days. But that isn't going to last long. It's been thundering in the distance, and I have noticed that I can now see some lightening not far away also.

The low last night was 67, and the high today is supposed to be 64. But after raining all day, it's supposed to be 39 by the time I start home this afternoon. There may be some sleet or snow. Now none of it will stick, since not only is the ground not frozen, but 39 is too warm for it to do anything other than fall.

This is going to make for a nice dreary Monday. I'd call in this morning, but don't want to use any of the time I have built up. I'd rather use it for something I really want to do as opposed to staying in and being like an old bear.

I heard on the news last night about a man that wanted to miss work badly enough to have his friends shoot him in the sholder. Now that's desperate! He must really hate his job. Or he knew he was going to be in some sort of trouble when he got in. I don't think anything at work would cause me to ask someone to shoot me just so I couel stay home.

What's the weather like in your corner of the world? I know lots of folks still have more snow than they know what to do with. What happens to all that snow when it begins to melt? Do the rivers rise? Does it cause flooding?

Hope everyone has a great day, and that the sun shines on all of my blogger friends.

Well, having just come back from sunny California, I'm not amused by the gray, rainy day here in the midwest. With freezing rain and snow predicted for tonight...

I'm in California - it's sun mixed with clouds today. Much cooler. Friday was almost 80 degrees! Then it dropped to below 60 the very next day.

Weird weather. Tricky. :) And thanks for visiting my blog.

Today it was sunny and 70. A few days ago we had 4" of snow. Go figure.
