April Spring Storm

I had put in leave for Monday April 15 (tax day, I know.) I had great plans to go shopping and just do "girl" stuff. Mother Nature had other ideas. It started snowing, raining ice pellets (what's with that?) and it really hasn't stopped for long since then. It is now Wednesday, the third day of our April spring storm.

So I didn't go anywhere on Monday, my "off" day. Tuesday was pretty yuckky weather wise, so I cleared my calendar and decided to work from home. Wednesday, today, the weather forecast was even worse, so again, cleared my calendar and worked from home. CSU closed early on Monday and closed today at noon. When CSU closes, you have got to know that the weather conditions are not good. 

The weird thing is prior to this storm we were having gorgeous spring weather. Snow from a prior storm had melted away.  Much to my astonishment, my bulbs had come up. So there Bunnies!


Photographic proof of my bulbs' survival of the bunnies.


 You might think that this photo is arbitrary. But, let me draw your attention to the garden container holder just to the left of the middle tree. Watch this carefully...


Where are you garden container holder? This was taken on April 16th.


This was taken today, April 17th at about noon. Hello garden container holder where are you?

While I am really greatful not to be out in this, after three days of being at home, I am starting to get a little antsy. So thanks Mother Nature for the much needed moisture, but please could you stop it? Moving along here people.
