The last week or so around here has been an exercise in extremes. First, last week we had a run of several days of above freezing temperatures and sunny weather, which caused virtually all the snow around to melt. Then, Friday night we had a huge snowstorm, dumping enough of the white stuff to completely cover the ground again. The next twenty-four hours, or so, saw slightly warmer temperatures again, and again, the snow all melted. Today, it is snowing again.
Make up your mind, damn it! Which is it? Is it still winter, or is it spring? I'm not the only one who wants to know, here. I see the trees budding - or at least almost budding, they're not sure if it's safe to go yet. Every time they get the signal of warmth and sunshine, and get ready to pop out the spring blossoms, you freeze their asses off the next day. And don't get me started about the maple syrup. Damn sap doesn't know whether to run or not.
Stop, OK Mr. Lion? Just stop. It's time to step down and give the lamb his time in the sun. Seriously, just because you over slept and were almost two months late getting here is no excuse for trying to overstay your welcome. Vamoose.
On an entirely unrelated note, here are a couple of Star Wars related things I stumbled across last week that I just know some of you will enjoy. First, we have Anakin Skywalker as a baby, and a little bit of foreshadowing.
And next, this little piece of Star Wars fan art called Dark Leia can only be described as awesomely awesome in its awesomosity.
I was right, wasn't I?
