April showers bring May flowers. April snow storms exceed the norms.
It seems last weekend’s three inches, which melted over the course of the day, will be replaced this weekend by five inches, forecast to fall and accumulate Saturday.
Who cares, you ask. The chauffeur for tomorrow’s trip to Hiram College, for a financial aid forum cares, that’s who. I know the roads will be cleared at 8 am, when we leave, but accumulating and slushy. I really dislike that sloshing through slush.
Then, Hiram College is built on top of a hill. Literally, all on street parking faces uphill or downhill. Add to that, there is very little parking anywhere at the college, built on a huge Connecticut Western Reserve green, unspoiled by parking lots. The building we must report to is smack on top of a hill.
Prior reconnaissance reveals exactly three on street handicap parking spaces adjacent to this building.
The plan is to arrive before the staff, for all practical purposes, and lay claim to a parking space. Theoretically all the parents attending are young and healthy and can leg it from wherever they park (in the surely very wet snow that will be falling. Tee-hee).
The narcissus after two snow storms. A little bedraggled.
The jonquils are slightly more defeated,
and the anemone stay closed all day, to come out and play when the sun shines.
