Will Winter Ever End?

April 21, 2013

Good morning.   Don't look at your calendar, but April is quickly coming to a close.  How is this possible?  The months from Spring to Fall have built in wings.  They seem to just fly by, and only the Winter months linger. 

I will say though, that this morning the sun is shining and the temperature is a bit on the cool side.  Actually, the cool temps will be here for at least a week.  Old Man Winter is having a tough time leaving us this year.  I am not really complaining though.  Some folks are still buried in several feet of snow, while others are flooded because of so much rain.

I know I have said this before, but why can't the folks with all the snow pile it on to railroad cars (or big trucks) and send it to the drier states to the West?  I really feel for them when all this snow starts to melt.

Tomorrow is Earth Day.  What can you do to help save our earth?  Did you know that by turning your thermostat down two degrees in Winter, and your air conditioner up two degrees in Summer, you save about 2000 pounds of CO2 from getting into the atmosphere.  And, you save money.   Watch the Weather Channel or check on Google to find other ways to go green.

Let's all say a prayer for the folks in the Central part of our country who are having to cope with massive flooding and more precipitation on the way.  Do you suppose if we all sent a letter or made a call to our Congress members asking for water pipelines to be built that it could help to avoid other water catastrophes such as the current flooding?  It's certainly worth a thought folks.

Also join me in a prayer for the all the people in West, Texas.  The explosion this week killed at least 14 people and injured more than 200 others.  Many of those killed were First Responders.  The cost of the devastation and damages is over 100 million dollars.   

My photos today were taken last week at the park.  The first photo is a couple of ducks playing, and the second photo is interesting because of the shape of the gull's tail feathers. 

That's it for my news this morning.  Pogo has been dancing around his dish of doggy food.  This is his "I'm hungry for real food, not this mess" dance.  This week I tried the "Blue" brand, but he won't eat that either.  I guess maybe I'll have to cook up some hamburgers.  Oh, the things we do to please our guys.  Even the furry ones.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Spring has got to come soon! We are bravely venturing into Wisconsin next Tuesday, warm or not, as we need to take care of some doctor appointments during our short time there. Maybe we'll pull nice weather with us and they will reward us with the keys to the city!
