Cherry Blossoms versus Blizzards

I love snow. I think it is beautiful, keeps the dog happy, and gives me an opportunity to snow shoe.

And then I log onto facebook and see all my DC friends and their Cherry Blossom Festival photos...and it rips out my heart.

For the past five years, my DC lifestyle had me all a twitter this time of year. Guests were flocking to the spare bedroom, warm weather clothes were being dusted off, and picnics and early morning/sunrise walks were planned for the two week event.

Whereas I love the 12 hours of sunshine right now, I miss the sounds, smells, and look of spring. I see Easter/Spring decor in our local stores, and I have to laugh. With all our snow, our local rabbits really are still all-white. Heh.

I hung an Easter Bunny on my front door. But, I still have a snow man decoration stuck in the snow right near it. I think I need to take the snow man away - the 2-3 foot high drifts give away the fact that there's still snow....

Not having a real spring here has been the hardest thing about living here for me. Hands down.
