It's Not Over Yet

I thought Spring was here. But man was I wrong! We have about 4 or more inches of snow on the ground right now. It's April! Sad news, I was told that Minnesota can even get snow in May. That's just crazy! All the snow from our previous snow fall had melted and the lake has even begun to defrost. In one of the pictures you can see the water (not ice) on the lake with the snowy ground. This snow is wet, as our last fall was dry. So the roads were very scary to drive on. I went to Amanda's today to hold Bria for about 4 hours while she was able to get some cleaning done around the house. I slid a couple times, but God kept me safe. I think I'll stay off the roads for now on until things are clear though.
A good side to this cold...I'm really hoping that the temperatures in the high teens will kill off all those nasty black bugs that popped up on our warm days. That would be wonderful! I felt bad for all the birds that had already migrated back up here though.
I wonder when it actually gets warm for at least a week at a time up here. :)


  1. Amazing! We live in Illinois, and our flowers had come up. We went from 60's to 30 degree weather (all the flowers are frozen). I thought we had it bad, until I saw your pictures! I'm like you, I don't drive when it's slick, unless I absolutely have to!
