Come Back Spring!
Spring, where is thy warmth and sweet smell?! Correct me if I'm wrong but this IS officially spring. I realize I'm in Winnipeg where winters can last and last and it's not always guaranteed that on May long weekend you'll be able to plant without the continued risk of frost. But still........... This winter has already been so long and bitterly cold that we've all had enough. Last week there were puddles everywhere, snow was melting and you could see grass and muddy gardens, kids were riding bikes......then THIS! I'm not sure of the exact amount of snow but over the last couple days I'm sure we have more snow now than the original amount that was here. And the winds and ice under the snow, it is treacherous outside. I just cleaned my driveway yesterday of all the ice and show so I could actually get up it with out getting stuck and now it looks like I never did it. Guess, I know what I'll be doing as soon as I'm done here. After watching my kids yesterday I'd say they are ready for spring/summer too (that's the only reason I can think of for them doing what they did). While my oldest son & I were cleaning the driveway, my 3 & 5 year old were on the front step on the bench with a blanket and pillows. That part's OK but later when I looked they had taken of their boots, jackets, AND socks. Despite telling then to get dressed or they will get cold they insisted they weren't cold and continued to dance around like it was the middle of June. Needless to say, in a while they were crying and calling "Mommy, I'm Cold...". We went inside and got warmed up and everyone was better. P-L-E-A-S-E come back Spring , we are SO ready for you! Winter, winter go away and come again another day (like next year!).
