You Might Want to Go Get Some Cheese

Here comes the whine.

It is snowing. SNOWING and SNOWING and SNOWING.


I understand that I live in Alberta and we have spring storms but when they interfer with my plans I get grumpy. Kick a cat grumpy. Except I couldn't even find a cat, there is too much snow.

You see, tomorrow I was supposed to drive about 45 minutes to a different city to meet another blogger. I've been reading Teri's blog for about a year or so and was so excited to finally meet her. She is intelligent and funny and NOT your typical mommy blogger. Unlike yous truly. It would have made for some great conversation.

But now that's not gonna happen. Grrr.

I keep reading about all these other bloggers and how they meet and it sounds sooo fun but it doesn't happen often for me for two reasons:

a) most of the bloggers I read have seven billion readers and wouldn't know me from a hole in the wall

b) 98% of the people who read this blog already know me. Hi Aunties!!

So, when I finally get to meet someone guess what happens?

Three days of snow accompanied by nasty, nasty winds. Not exactly what you want to drive in with a two and three year old.

With all this storming you'd think at least I'd get some graphics. Yeah, not so much. If we got this in August, they might mention it on the news, but till then all I get is snow and no Teri.

Well at least snow is pretty.

Pretty awful.

Awwwww. Bummer. Snow in April is so wrong. Crossing my fingers for a freak heat wave to hit. Er, tonight. So that it's all melted in the morning.

Um... It could happen? Maybe?

It's snowing???!!! Ahhhhh.....poor you!!!! lol ;) pitty from the northern BC'er still stuck in TONS of snow too!! (We've got at LEAST another month of winter left here!!!)

Actually....I'd be sad too if I had to cancel a blogger buddy meeting though!!! I still think it's no fair that all my friends are getting to meet you before me!! Gotta plan a trip to Alberta again soon!!! :)

You have to love Alberta! So I'm guessing you don't want to know what type of weather we're having here!!

Teri is worth whining about.

But for the snow- Ready?

I shoveled my large backyard cement patio off yesterday afternoon to make it want to melt quicker and turn my grass greener. I guess that my grass will be greener b/c of this snowfall BUT I wanted to be hosting bbqs now...not that I'm complaining:-)

I feel your pain.

It's not snowing here, but three days of snow in late April is wrong. Just plain wrong.

Teri said...

HAHAHAHA! You are hilarious!

And thank you Char, glad I come with a good recomendation!

This snow will not beat us, we WILL have coffee!

Sarah said...
