Hard to believe it's almost April ....

... when you wake up on March 29th to this --->

especially when you've been wearing shorts, sandals and short-sleeves for the past few weeks. I do think the snow on this tree is beautiful and I can get a good idea of exactly how much snow we've gotten by the way it falls on the topside of the branches.

Another great indicator is the kids' plastic picnic table which always seems to be in a spot to make the best snow-gauge. And since it's open underneath, the snow stays cold enough to give us a chance to measure it! Pretty cool, eh?

The silver lining in this snow-filled cloud today is that it means we get to snuggle on the couch and read, read, read (with breaks for hot chocolate and German Brown bread!)

And, I'm sure you don't want to hear that there is very good probability of this happening even in May!
