Sunday Funday – Blizzard Missed Us Edition

just not sure

Didn’t I learn my lesson last week of not making fun of Mother Nature? Well, {neener, neener} you missed us with your big old blizzard! And boy they make fun of Iowans watching the grass grow in the summer for excitement. Well I was nearly that bad this week as I went out just to stand and watch the snow melt. Felt good.

Got a picture from relatives in Minnesota with them in the middle of their 8 foot mounds of snow and a “full” sign stuck in the snow. That was before Thursday night’s blizzard. Snow that could be much better used in Sochi where temperatures continue in the 50s. Almost can’t wait to switch my winter complaining to summer complaining.
