Yesterday I woke up to a blizzard.
It snowed all morning, quit for a bit and then snowed again all night. It was nasty, windy and snowy.
I thought it was supposed to be spring now! I'm SO ready for daffodils and green grass.

I was pretty cross and confused until I remembered this little saying that they have here in the Haute Savoie about the month of March:
"In like a lion, out like an enraged polar bear."

Ok, I just made that up.
But they NEED a saying like that so that people don't get crazy, unrealistic ideas about lambs...

So, would you say that you are actually missing the weather in Burkina at this point?

That's amazing!

I do hope that spring comes quickly so that you and your family can begin enjoying the sun and all the new life that it inspires.

Rocky- I wouldn't go so far as to say that! Back in Ouaga it is full-on hot season, complete with daily power cuts. I vastly prefer to be where I am now. I am just a bit frustrated because I want to start planting a garden and putting in flower bed.

P.- I think so, too. I'd forgotten about the crazy spring snowstorms that come with mountain life. It's better than messy rain downpours, anyway...
