The Friday Five

Mother Nature graced us with a blanket of snow. Five things I love about the stuff:

1. It looks so pretty all clean and sparkling white.

2. What a rush to drive down the hill with the back end of the car fishtailing from side to side.

3. No need to shovel as the snow will melt quickly (hopefully not into the basement)

4. There's nothing like a gentle reminder that Winter lasts from November to April. Only 29 days left. Punxatawney Phil was wrong in his early Spring prediction. The rodent is near-sighted and needs glasses.

5.  I've heard a Spring snow is called Farmer's Gold as the snow is considered cheap fertilizer.

The farmers can keep their gold. Have a Happy April Fool's Day.


  1. I love the blue birdhouse in that picture--really stands out. What I love most about a fresh snowfall is driving down a street blanketed in white. It feels like I'm in a fairy tale when that happens.

  2. Give Phil his due-- this is a freckle amongst a season of Chicken Pox. He called it. We were getting slammed until he laid down the law.

  3. That's a positive way to deal with things...or is this an April Fool's joke, you being upbeat about snow.
