Wisconsin, April 2nd... snow.

It will be in the 60s tomorrow, but for now... some brightness, brighter now, actually, as the sun is out.

UPDATE: We've been alternating between storms and sunshine. I've lost count of how many times it's shifted from one to the other. Completely sunny then dark and snow-stormy. I learned the word "clipper."

Snow in April -- exactly as predicted by anthropogenic global warming!

I woke up to a few flakes this morning, sub-freezing temps for most of the next week and more snow expected. April is shaping up to be colder than December, and this week colder than most of January.

I'm having a difficult time deciding what poem I should memorize next. I've considered a bunch, like "Sonnet 18" and "Birches" and "When I Have Fears That I May Cease To Be" and many others but none of them really grab me.

I started on "The Second Coming" because I kind of dig its vibe of brooding dread but that whole Spiritus Mundi stuff sounds like something you'd get from a certified nut job.

Maybe I should just admit to myself that I'm too much of a picky-pants for poetry and move on.

In other words, you know, give up.

Wisconsin almost always has measurable snow in April. Heck, up Nort' you get in May. My dad wouldn't plant until Labor Day.

It always snows a little in the first week of April - especially if I go to planting roses or whatever. They see that.

Curious George I hope you mean Memorial Day ;)

Snow, sun, snow, sun. Tells you something about atmospheric stability today.

It's getting late in the game but it has arrived in Wisconsin yet again with the customary sense of entitlement and will soon make it's way east. Normal people are weary of having to endure it's troubles and dangers but there's those few obsessive freaks who relish every moment of its presence and fear an endless summer dashing hopes for it's resurgence late in the year.

Enough about Hillary though, it also snowed...

Yesterday, sun then rain, then sun, then hail then sun and cold then rain. Today I wake up to snow, then sleet, then sun! Getting a little tired of winter here in Madison, but it is interesting.

80 degrees yesterday, 50 degrees today, with rain in Slower Maryland. Spring proceeding nicely.

Ooops. Yeah, the holiday in May.

"...atmospheric stability..."

It is to laugh!
