Weird Weather Wednesday

What a difference a few days can make.  In the midwest we loosely refer to this as "Springtime".  We really don't have a Spring - it just alternates between winter & summer for a while before settling on one (the same thing happens in the fall).  Recently we had temperatures over 60F, and the dogs we out sunbathing on my deck.

Aaaahhhhhh.....

Does this angle make our butts look big?
 



Here they are in the exact same spot, just a few days later.  6 inches of snow later, 40 degrees cooler.  So much for sunbathing.  Anyone up for snowbathing? Don't think I'll have any takers there...

Carmen, we can tell you were eating snow again.

Brutus can't even bear to look - his eyes were closed in every picture!
Guess you just have to be ready for anything around here this time of year.  Who knows what tomorrow will bring - get the bathing suits ready, but don't put the snow suits away!

We have had a few of those gorgeous early Spring teasers too, but we are still hoping for at least one more snowfall:) We are hearing it will be a very wet and cold Spring here in northeast Kansas, Mom is really worried about all the mud:(

That's so very weird!!! We tend to alternate between rain all winter and sun all summer with all the attached problems of both extremes! Hope it all evens out soon!

Ain't it the truth?! I'm so tired of more surprises of the white stuff that I think I'll go live in a cave if we get any more! I'm with Brutus all the way!

Okay,

I will sing my snow-snow go away song for you!

We never had much snow, but we are ready for spring too. We want to GARDEN!!

Um, yeah, that angle does make your butts look big. But if it is any consolation, Brutus, Carmen's butt looks way bigger than you. (Hippobottomus II?). As for snowbathing? Um. Yeah, I've got a blonde sister who LOVES a good snowbathing....
