Wasn't I just extolling the weather gods for their drama? Yes, I think that was me.
Celebrating the season that is due any day now, my 6th graders have been painting trees. Some of their creations are blooming pink.
While others are spring-green. I love their spring pictures.
So it has all been very nice, but I should have known what was coming.
I woke up to this today: school is canceled and I can't even get out of the driveway.
What? More snow?
Yes. You see, we here in western Oregon are doing our bit to stifle global warming, keepin' it frigid and icy. But the same can't be said of all you slackers out there in the rest of the country, Alaska excepted. All of you people in your shorts and tank tops, sipping your mojitos under umbrellas in the sun. Roller-blading. Driving around in convertibles listening to rock 'n roll. Backyard barbecues.
It's only March! You know you don't deserve it!
