I had my fourth and final birthday celebration with my sister and her fiance. They surprised me with tickets for us all to see Sinbad. We had a nice dinner first and then saw the show. Oh my, he is as funny as ever and boy have I needed a laugh like that. We laughed so much our cheeks were hurting by the time we left.
I needed that laugh because the very night we went, we were in the midst of yet another snowstorm. Because of the timing it wasn't sticking to the roads too bad thankfully since we were driving to the casino that's a half hour away from my house. It was supposed to stop by 2 am so you can imagine my surprise when I got up the next day and not only was it snowing, it was worse than they had predicted. We ended up with about 4 inches of snow.
And that was the first day of spring. I had promised Mr. Helen that no matter what I was putting my Happy Spring flag up and I did. I'm sick and tired of winter and just want it to go far, far away. I decided I'd take a photo a week to see the progression of the snow pile. In a week, we had enough melting that the bottom of the flag got set free and some of our grass was beginning to show up on the one end of the yard that's getting some sun now.
Well, guess what? It snowed again here this past weekend. It showed all day long on Saturday and at first it wasn't sticking but then it did. By the time we got up Sunday, all the areas of grass that had been starting to show were covered again. I think it will melt down more this week but still it's maddening at this point, even if it is just a dusting. Maddening I tell ya!
