The twighlight zone


Some pretty weird things were happening this weekend at the Nelson house. First of all- Craig was sick and I wasn’t. We aren’t really programmed to handle this sort of scenario, and as I was forced to call and cancel plans because of Craig, I am sure a hole was torn in the universe somewhere.

The second thing weird thing is that it snowed on Saturday. I know already that some of you are going to claim that because it is mid-Februaury in Missouri that this is not such a weird thing at all, and you might even go so far as to say that this should be expected. Well, I disagree. It has been 60 degrees all January and I had pretty much decided that Spring was here. With all of the global warming going on, I think it was an extremely reasonalbe assumption to make. I hadn’t gone so far as to pack up the winter coats, but I was contemplting down-grading from a duvet to a quilt the day the snow hit. As far as snow goes, this was the type I like. Huge, fluffy flakes that look so pretty and melt the second they hit the ground. The problem is just that I am done with winter. I’ve been good so far- I have been watching my netflix and reading more books but now I am done with it. So I will let this one go, but there better not be any more snow this year in KC. It’s time for Spring!!!

  1. My dearest daughter, This is Feb 13 in Kansas (and Missouri and all other states) which means that we are still in winter. Never pack winter clothes until May 1 at the earliest. Do you not recall the april in Manhattan when we had 12″ of snow. Actually, you may not since I shovelled the drive by myself so you could get to school the next day. (And then the snow plows dumped another 36′ in front of the drive.) Spring is a few weeks away. Today was certainly a taste of spring as will be tomorrow. By the way, HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY a day early (ok, it’s only 49 minutes early). Be patient. Spring will come, but not for a few more weeks. This week-end promises to be a reminder that winter is still here. See you dad
