April Showers: Minnesota Style

Sunday, April 17, 2011. I see I missed last week's entry. Sorry about that. Today is Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week - and snow is off the ground. Again.

I'm not complaining: in a way, we're getting spring twice this year. The first week of April was bright, cheery, warm - and saw the street sweeper roaring by, giving the pavement a good scrub and rinse.

Then, this week, we got our April showers. Snow showers: rain, frozen stuff, and finally snow.

I like living in Minnesota, where our weather isn't the same familiar routine, year after year.
