Since now, apparently, Iowa has joined the Arctic Circle, we are waiting out yet another snowstorm. But this is THE BIG ONE. The meteorologists are nearly wetting themselves they're so excited....their excitement annoys me. This is not exciting....the exact same way tornadoes are not exciting. They're destructive, annoying, needless bits of weather. So there. At least act a little put out by this weather dear mr. meteorologist...your glee is showing through your gleeming white teeth. Okay, I'm done.
Winter is making me super snarky.
Therefore, I declare it spring. Just call me Groundhog Jen. That's GROUNDhog Jen....not HOG Jen, just to clarify. WHOA....I'd just like to say that last line apparently REALLY ticked off Mother Nature, because now, as I type, in the middle of this damn "historic" blizzard it is lightning AND thundering. Um, seriously? Come on. Why don't you just throw a tornado in there....the meteorolgists will be curled in the fetal position on the set convulsing with excitement.
Okay, you win this round Mother Nature. This is our backyard today...if you squint REALLY hard you can see the neighbor's house across the alley. Yes, it was snowing/blowing that hard. Sheesh.
But before we know it this will be the glorious site in the backyard. Yay summer.
