Angry Lovely winter we having this spring? Rant!

All the snow melted off the mountain, I could finally haul the 2 1/2 hours to the equine vet for spring maintenance on the horses. Wake up this morning, oh nice, snowstorm. By the time we got ready to go, it melted and the sun was out, but freezing cold. While at the vet, I look outside, it's snowing, beauty! Just under $1000 lighter (expensive but so far the best equine vet I have used) and on our way home, hail, wind, snow, and it's sticking to the ground!!! This was an hour from home, at our place, no snow, its just freezing cold. Thanks for listening, as the only thing I can do about the weather is to complain about it, or maybe move, which I will, eventually, south, way south.

Oh wares, I do feel your pain! I am even farther north than you and this extended wintertime is really starting to get to me. But we must stay positive, and have faith in the power of May!

I think I'm starting to get a bit delirious...

Our high today will be mid-80s. Thursday will be 45 and a chance of snow. The horses are not loving Mother Nature's mood swings any more than the people are.
