Picture a Day - Day 52

"Man it's been a really long day in the lab and been a long 4 week as it is. I can't wait to get home and just enjoy the day. After all it was a gorgeous 58 yesterday, spring should be here soon."

*Opens door to outside world and first thing she sees is this*"That's it! I've had it!

"Old man winter, where are you? You have some explaining to do. Oh you think you're all clever eh, hiding behind me? Well I caught you!""We've put up with you more than usual this year. You've been there to wreck any nice Christmas planning and trips so many of us had.

"And never mind how much you obviously love destroying any dreams we have. Oh sure, lull us into a false hope that you've finally given up and Ms. Spring has taken over (I hear she goes by Nancy now) with false promises of warm days and clear streets.

"Then as the weekend starts to settle in and we're all free to actually relax and enjoy the outdoors, you hit us back like an errant puppy. Blizzards, ice storms, and sub zero weather all parts of your evil mischief we've had it up to here with. Hey, where do you think you're going?

"Get your frozen ass back here, you have whole lot of other inquiries to explain! Don't think I won't chase you down!""Fine, run away and hide you big chicken. I'm taking this straight to Mother Nature and we all know how much she can kick your miserly butt.

"Winter."

Maybe this poem will help you get through winter with a smile...


It's winter in Nebraska
And the gentle breezes blow
Seventy miles an hour
At thirty-five below.

Oh, how I love Nebraska
When the snow's up to your butt
You take a breath of winter
And your nose gets frozen shut.

Yes, the weather here is wonderful
So I guess I'll hang around
I could never leave Nebraska
Cuz I'm frozen to the ground!

I was ready for spring last month...maybe next month... (fyi we still have a foot of snow lingering) Maybe I shouldn't hold my breath.
