Camelias er, Rhododendrons Are In Bloom; So Why Can’t We Go Out And Play Yet?

April 24, 2008
Now one of the reasons, if not the main one, for us wanting to move out west is to get away from the horrendous and nasty winters of the Midwest. Everyone knows about the incessant snow, the cold and the gloom. Funny thing is that after these photos were taken out here in the North West, it snowed, it turned frigid and has been perpetually gloomy. That’s an all time record for this late in April. Meanwhile back in the Midwest I hear the air is balmy and the sun has not been hidden by clouds for eons now.

Am not one who usually talks that much about the weather (except for this past winter), that’s far too British for even me, but I’d like to pack away my boots and heavy jacket, stash the array of woolen caps into the back of the closet, remove the snow shovel from my car as well as the kitty litter bag that slides around the trunk. (For those non snow people [clean, unused] cat litter helps with traction if one happens to be stuck on a patch of ice.) If we Midwesterners (and now Pacific North Westerners) are constantly complaining about the cold and masses of snow, what the heck are we going to do as the planet gets warmer and warmer. Think on that a bit.

For right now – I don’t want to take this too personally – but…….when will we be able to go out and play?
