What the...?

This is what it LOOKS like outside in our yard today:
Trees and flowers in beautiful bloom...
Butterflies gliding from flower to flower...
It's May, afterall... not crazy unpredictable April... but May.
My HEAT just clicked on in the house.
It's 45 for a HIGH today, currently 36.
(Need I remind you, it was sunny and in the 80's just a few short days ago...)
I'm officially annoyed.
And does this look RIGHT to anyone?
Robins, the token carrier-bird of Springtime, in the SNOW?
It's tragic, really...
. . . .
I copied this off my friend Jenn's blog and it pretty much sums up my feeling precisely...

Dear Old Man Winter,

I do not regret to inform you that you have worn out your stay here and are no longer welcome.

Please know that I am anxiously awaiting your hasty departure. I will not miss you. I will not be sad when you are gone. Furthermore, please do not return or rear your ugly head around here for at least another 7 months. Please be advised that upon said return, you will be required to sign a contract stating that you will only be present for a maximum of 120 days, at which time you will be required to leave promptly... No lingering allowed... No exceptions!

Thank you for your understanding and prompt attention to the matter. Your vacancy of the premises is required immediately. No exceptions.

Ready for Spring about 30 days ago
