April (Snow) Showers Bring May (Frozen) Flowers

I know it isn't April for a couple of days, and flowers have already poked their tops through the spring soil, so they don't have to wait until May.  But the old saw goes, "April showers bring May flowers," and so we're stuck with it.

If this old saying is true, then please explain what I'm seeing outside the Indiana Roving Reporter Room windows.

It Sure Isn't Dandruff
 That, my friends, is snow falling.  It's the end of March, for Pete's sake!  This is NOT what I ordered when I put in my springtime weather request (you have to file in triplicate, by the way, using old-fashioned carbon paper between the pages).  Who do I email to set this nonsense straight?

It's snowing MUCH harder than it looks in these photos

Most of the time, I'm a cheerful, friendly type of feline (unlike Cauli, who, like Scowl-Face, is mostly irritable).  But this weather has me steamed!  Things had better become more spring-like in short order, or else I won't be renewing my subscription to World Weather Almanac.

Hoping the Flowers Will Be Okay Despite the Chill,

P.S.  This situation calls for "Don't Eat the Yellow Snow," by Frank Zappa (from his 1974 album, ' [i.e., Apostrophe]).  Zappa's music may have been eccentric, but he was a groundbreaking musician by any standard.


  1. You're not the only one who's sick of the white stuff!

  2. Jules, there's no such serial or monograph as "World Weather Almanac."
