Dear Mother Nature,

I know it’s not nice to fool Mother Nature, and believe me, I have no intention of doing so, but I’m a little disheartened to see that you’re planning on dumping over a foot of snow on our little community tonight.

You see, the calendar says that it’s really close to spring, and while I don’t particularly enjoy the flooded yard or the gray skies, I do like the hopes of a dandelion appearing in our lawn some time before the Fourth of July. It would make me very happy. To compensate for this weather and the effects on my mood, I will be taking extra Vitamin D.

I know that we are suppose to love the snow here in Central New York, but I think we are getting a little sick of it. You’ll probably be still playing this whimsical game come May or June, but could you consider a break for just a moment?

I have included a photo with this post to show you when I’m quite happy with Central New York weather, just as a reminder. I would have autographed it but the computer doesn’t let me do that.
