5-1-2013 I can't believe it's been over a year since my last post. What a slacker - yeesh!! Ü All I can say is...get ready for Update-A-Palooza!!! I'm going to get caught up by posting all the photos from the last year or so first and will then go back and journal each entry later. Ü

Mother Nature Responds...

So a couple weeks ago when I filed a complaint with Mother Nature regarding our temps, I knew I may suffer her wraith for doing so. Well, She responded and let's just say it wasn't pretty. 

First of all, she struck me mute - literally!  Last Tuesday I woke up with my second head cold in a month, my head pounding & voice scratchy.  By Thursday, my voice was so messed up that everytime I tried to talk, these horrid, only-dolphins-can-interpret squawking sounds came out.  Tim just looked at me and nodded a lot & Picabo ran & hid.  BUT, the temps were in the 50s again, so I figured even though Mother Nature didn't like my questioning her, we had come to some kind of understanding.  When Sunday rolled around not only could I produce a somewhat normal-sounding sentence or two, but the day was absolutely GORGEOUS - 76 degrees & sunshine baby!  It seemed the worst had passed.

That was until I looked out my window yesterday morning and saw THIS...
 

That's right, SNOW!!!  Oh yeah, me & Mother Nature have an understanding alright...I understand that She doesn't give a rip about what I think or want - hehe!

It only lasted a few hours & I actually enjoyed watching it fall. The flakes were HUGE - some of the biggest I've ever seen. Picabo wanted nothing to do with it & stayed under her blankets all day.

Here's Tim finishing up his run 

Today with my cold mostly gone & my voice back to normal I'm thinking a bit clearer & concede it probably wasn't Mother Nature punishing me.  But you've gotta admit the timing is a bit suspicious.  And 76 degrees one day, 32 the next - well that enough to drive anyone a little crazy.  Kramer's right, Mother Nature is indeed a mad scientist!   I just wish she'd take that madness somewhere else
