    So I'd like to know what April SNOW brings. We are under a winter storm warning and the white stuff started about 20 minutes ago....they are predicting 15 - 20 cm of snow with ice pellets and freezing rain too! We are going to get a little bit of everything it seems. :(

    I just know those blue camels are going to appear again if this keeps up! LOL

    Shadowdancer,

    Look at it as a blessing! Now you can hibernate again and get more of those beautiful quilts made. I love to sew when it is raining or snowing. It is just so peaceful.

    It does look pretty. We did a little landscaping (for color) yesterday. Last night we had a thunderstorm with hail, but I think my little baby flowers are going to be okay :) My car, however, got a couple of dings. I haven't made the first car payment yet :) Still...life is good!

    Oh my, you must be way up north. Well..., when the snow melts there will be nice moist soil for the flowers to peep up with. :D

    I can't believe it's April and you're still getting snow! It's 83 degrees here today in Virginia. I feel your pain!

    I just sat out my plants in the sun, my spare bedroom was my greenhouse. :lol: :lol:

    Cheer up! Spring is just around the corner for you.

    Spring has got to get your way soon.

    Wow! Winter in April! I can believe you're tired of it! Does it get very hot there in the summer? Will you be like tinhri and wish for snow then? :-)

    We're forecast for some of that white stuff for today and tomorrow. I hope they're as wrong as usual. :)

    Shadow,

    You are either in Minn. Wisconsin, or one of the Dakotas. We woke up to about an inch in the Twin Cities, but that melted away quickly. It spit snow off and on all day on Sunday.

    We move next weekend to Northfield, MN where it snowed also. The winter this year is cruel. It gives us some warmth, and then takes it away. I would love to be working on a quilt, but my quilt supplies are packed away for at least a month, if not more.

    So, by now the snow should be gone where you are. Almost, if not totally. Remember... there is only one month that it has NOT snowed in Minnesota--July!

    Anita

    Oh, I'm so sorry about the darn April snow! I put out my garden and it frosted last night :evil: It sure looks goofy now...buckets over every single 1 of my plants..looks like a pretty funny crop, but hopefully I saved it all. Yesterday the corn started coming up for heavens sakes!!

    Ok, I just got a GREAT idea!
    Those of you with snow, just send me a plane ticket. I'll come visit and chase the snow away. Seems where ever I go, there's NO SNOW!!

    Shadow,

    I knew where you were... only I forgot!! And I forgot our Canadian members altogether. You get it worse that we do in Minnesota! Spring really can't be that far off, can it? I guess I won't grumble about our measly inch or so...

    Anita
