Snow in April

I am home again and am amazed at the diversity of weather we have here in the good old US of A. We were in Minnesota from last Thursday until this afternoon. I am a true lover of the four season deal...although having grown up in Oklahoma and lived there or Texas all my life, I rarely had more than winter, spring and HOT. Some years we would have a little fall when I lived in Tulsa, but not the kind you read about in New England...gorgeous fall leaves, crisp days and nights, yada, yada, yada.

I knew I was in deep trouble when we were landing at Minneapolis/St Paul and I could see snow on the ground in APRIL!!!! (I suffer somewhat from the syndrome where you go a little crazy during prolonged gray nasty days...) I'm good with the snow because it is not on all of the roads or anything, but holy moly, it is APRIL and some of the ponds are still frozen. I told the bearded one I could probably not live in Minnesota where it might snow on my birthday (in April).

But, we did have a little sun on Thursday and Friday, but it was cloudy and rainy the rest of the weekend. This morning while I was packing up to go to the airport there were SNOWFLAKES falling out of the sky. I ran in to TBO and practically screeched the news to him...he already had seen and was not terribly impressed.

It was a good thing to get off the plane at DFW this afternoon in 75 degree weather with sun and green trees and lawns.

We did have a great time though. TBO ministered at a spring conference there and we got to stay with some great friends. All in all, a wonderful time was had by all, but I was glad to come home to the south! I hope I remember this in July and August.

I have you beat. When I left Denver on Thursday, it was snowing. Four hours later, I land in Midland = 90 degrees.
