Forgot to mention: Easter weekend, second week of April, right? And it's snowing. Again.
It did this the first year we were in this state, too, but not since then, I think. Can it really have been 8 whole years? Yep, almost to the day. I've never lived anywhere else for 8 consecutive years. I'm not sure we intended to be here that long, but here we still are, and here we'll stay until the Evil One's grip is loosed from us. (Maybe another 6 years.)
Sigh. Hey, maybe I'll luck out and die first. Whew!
