Not quite April's Fool

I haven't posted anything lately because there's not much going on outside of the sacred ordinary. I have been home almost 5 weeks straight without even a weekend trip. It's been at least 6 months since that has happened. It has been a nice change. However, spring in Kansas is always an adventure. There's an old adage: if you don't like the weather in Kansas, stick around 30 minutes - it will change. It has been very true lately.

The first day of spring, March 20, was great. We've been having some beautiful early spring weather. That changed Friday, March 27 with a few inches of ice pellets. Then Saturday, March 28 we had 4 inches of snow in Wichita. Which actually was a lot less than predicted. Just west & north of here there was 20+ inches of snow. It isn't completely unusual but it's not common either. I thought I'd give you some visuals. Prince Charming (my cement frog statue) on Saturday afternoon is barely peeking through the snow on the patio. Prince Charming 2 days later after every bit of snow was gone.

We'll see what April 1 actually brings when tomorrow dawns.
