I thought it was pretty good, so I posted it too, though I had at least one person tell me that Wisconsin Spring is loading normally.  He's probably right.  After a long winter, we're all excited to think about Spring - warmer weather, flowers, green grass, etc.  And the weather certainly likes to tease us.  One day we have temperatures in the 80's, and a few days later we wake up to snow on the ground!  It happens every year, so we really shouldn't be surprised.A beautiful day for a drive

I took this picture Tuesday morning - a beautiful Spring day, don't you think?  It was a sleety, icy mess, and since we've had a few weeks of almost-Spring weather, so many people forgot how to drive!  At least it seemed that way!  Me, I was just glad my husband was driving, and all I had to do was take pictures out the windshield.  They didn't turn out as well as if I was using one of these nikon 300s, but I think my phone does OK - and I can send pics straight to facebook.  Still, maybe I would have been able to tell if the car in front of us had any hello kitty car accessories.

I don't usually complain about the weather, just enjoy it as it comes. (and appreciate it when I'm not the one who has to drive in bad weather)  What else can we really do?  It's not like we can control it.  Spring really is here, even if it may not look like the Spring we had in mind all the time.  It won't be long before we'll be pulling out the ariens lawn mower every few days because wet Spring weather means the grass grows like crazy.   If it happens too soon, the boy won't be home from college, and I'll probably have to mow.  (Not that I actually mind, but Shhhh, don't tell my husband)
