I Am A Snow Jinx

A couple of weeks ago, while we were walking Angus, I remarked to Lu what a nice evening it was and how it felt like Winter was finally past and Spring here for good.

The very next day it snowed.

On Sunday we were again walking Angus on a warm Spring evening when I said it again. But this time I was certain! Dang it, Winter is over and Spring is here.

This is what hit us yesterday.

It's more hail than actual snow but it was cold enough that it stuck like snow and felt like snow. If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck it's almost certainly frozen precipitation. It's also been cold as heck the last two days.

So I'm now going to try some reverse psychology, Calvin style.

Brrrr. It's cold. Feels like Winter is here to stay. For a long time. With no sign of Spring. Anywhere. I swear.

And this time I mean it.

Until early June I try not to comment on the weather. I've had much the same thing happen to me. I remember posting back in late January as to how much I liked seeing a bit of snow on the ground. Then in early February we had a blizzard, three feet of the white stuff and no power for three days. Yup, these days I just whistle and wait for the calendar to say "June".

So YOU'RE the one to blame?! No wonder! And you got off easier than we did!

At least it didn't stick to the roads and I've been able to continue commuting on my motorcycle and scooter ;-)

I'm going to follow your advice Sarge and just whistle. I clearly cannot be trusted with weather control.

Yep, it was me Jeff. I've been forbidden by state law from ever washing my truck :)

"Man, I'm glad it's not snowing in the DFW metroplex!"
Did it work RA??

My weather Fu magically pulled in cold weather and snow directly from Ohio Dann. Hey, I just did the dance. How could I have known??

Heh. Got some rain, and it was down in the 40's today. Guess that's as close as we can get.

Next, say "It shall rain hundred-dollar-bills inside RA's house". Pretty please?

Hey, if I'm going there it's strictly greedsville. I'd even settle for a shower of singles!
