So much for Spring

It is snowing right now. Blizzarding, even. I'm looking out my window and mad flurries of white are swirling down and around. My car is coated in white. The streets are thick, slippery, and slow coming into work today. It's April. April! I bought a new skirt and a tanktop two weeks ago. I thought it was Spring.

Obviously, it's not. *sigh* Getting to work was challenging but not really too bad. Motivating myself to leave the house was much harder. I was exhausted for some reason, and could barely drag myself out of bed this morning. When I saw the white crap everywhere, I crawled right back in. Even once I was up, I kept drifting back to my back room, hating the idea of venturing out. I like snow, I really do....I'm just tired of it. Tired of being cold.

There are tulips, daffodils, and crocuses trying to poke their heads out of the ground in my yard. I even saw a couple of tiny yellow crocus-blooms last week. Before they were covered with freezing rain, layers of ice, and now a few inches of snow. I wonder if they'll be okay. I hope so.

In other news, Steve Hartsel was at my speedskating practice yesterday....yet another figure skater searching for a new sport. It was his first time on speed skates....I gave him a few pointers on how to make the transition. I'm still such a beginner myself though, I didn't feel right saying much. Probably the only chance I'll have to give a skater of his caliber pointers, though!
