and here comes the sun!!!

whew! Maybe we made it? Maybe the rain will stop for a day? Maybe it won't snow, then rain, than freeze again? Maybe my bulbs will begin to come up?

I'm not whining, believe me! I love living here. It's everything I hoped. I just get a little dragged down by the gray, the gloom and the rain. Just some days. I don't even realize until I read this and realized, THE SUN WAS SHINING!!!

I'm still in a bit of shock living here in this gentler climate. We lived in Calgary (above Montana for you Americans) until a year and a half ago. It's a great place with terrible, unpredictable weather. We would go to bed with the sun shining and the grass staring brownly at us and wake up to a wind so cold and stiff that it could strip paint off the house. Or there'd be snow drifts up to the steps one day and plus 15 the next. I have to admit I do miss that prairie sun! Now I barely even have to take my sunglasses out of the case from about November to February. I think I've made a fair trade though.

I can hear the boys out jumping on the tramp and the girls are dancing to their new favorite CD behind me.

Maybe even the soccer games will be a go this weekend?!

Sun? What's a S-U-N? I don't know what you're talking about. Isn't the sky always covered by gray heavy clouds and doesn't it usually rain all the time?

Love the green grass and the snow together. We usually only see that in August!
So glad you had some sun today.

Looks gorgeous. Makes me jealous. I am so sick of winter.

It's amazing the impact that weather makes on where you live. When we are looking to move to a place, the weather is seldom the first thing on my mind. (Don't tell my husband, though -- he's a meteorologist.)
