April fools!

Okay, Winter. Ha-ha. Yeah, April Fools — I get it.

You played a great joke on us, making us believe that you were moving out on March 20 and that Spring was moving in, as usual.

In the past 10 days since the announcement of this so-called “Spring”, we’ve had snow, sub-freezing temperatures, and for the last 4 days, unending freezing rain.

    • Throw some heat our way, please! The temperature has actually risen today. Not too warm, but just enough where I could leave my coat unbuttoned while walking 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by!
