Things that make me go HUH?

This past Saturday we had a winter storm. No matter that is technically spring. The temperature dropped and we awoke Saturday morning to freezing rain which turned to sleet at mid-day. Everything was coated in ice. Beautiful, but when limbs on trees appear ready to give way pretty doesn't cut it.

About the time I started thinking we were going to loose some tree limbs the sleet turned to snow. Enormous snowflakes that looked like thousands of Kleenex had just accidentally gone through the wash cycle.

Sunday reached fortyish degrees. The ice melted and most if the snow disappeared. By yesterday afternoon there was no evidence of the winter storm whatsoever.

Here's the weird thing. The forsythia, daffodils, hyacinth are still blooming! So are the Pear and Magnolia trees! The daffodils may be drooping slightly but you would never know these flowers had spent twenty four hours completely encased in ice.

Perhaps when I emerge from my ice cocoon my teen-aged thighs will reappear cellulite-free?

Well, about the thighs...stranger things have happened right? :) I'm glad the ice didn't kill your flowers!

If you find your teenage thighs, will you please take a quick look-see for my teenage boobs? They defected south some time ago and I miss them.

That would make the weather worth it, wouldn't it?

What a weekend! That's as bad as living in Wisconsin!

Swirl Girl said...

I was going ask your thighs if they've seen my boobs, but Violet beat me to it! Ha-ha!

A girl can hope, can't she?!

I thought we were going to lose all of the tulips. But so far, so good.

I'll take the ice and recover my abs, please.

It never hurts to dream. ;) And I'm with Violet and Swirl Girl--what the heck happened to my boobs?!

Oh wouldn't that be nice!!! Might even make the ice worth it.

I am jealous of all your blooms, we are not quite there yet AND we had 7,000 inches of snow over the weekend. Luckily it is all gone now!

I don't think a genius plastic surgeon could restore my teenage parts--- let me know how that ice works out for you though.
