AH, SPRING . . . THE OTHER SIDE
"March winds and April showers bring forth May flowers."
That's the way it should be.
But this is RIDICULOUS!
This is a "Winter Storm" in April. ("Winter Storm" according to the meteorologists at Environment Canada.)
Moderate to heavy snow. High winds (up to 107 km/hr).
Snow blowing sideways instead of falling downwards.
"Whiteout" (blizzard) conditions on a number of roads
(including Highway 16, the equivalent of a British Motorway,
that connects Regina and Saskatoon,
Saskatchewan's two main cities).
Cars and trucks (lorries) in the ditches.
Her Ladyship, Miss Sadie, doesn't even want to go out in this.
Nor does the Bear.
Sigh! Grr @$#%$^rr!
Today was set aside as a day to start getting
our vegetable and flower gardens ready
(though way too early to plant vegetables —
as you can see).
Next week, I guess.
I'm not going to shovel the snow; we might get more over night.
Or it might all melt tomorrow.
Time to hang out with J and Sadie, have a hot cuppa tea,
and read a book.
