It's snowing ... again!

Look at how beautiful this snowflake is. I need to look at this and try to appreciate its beauty because I'm really sick and tired of winter and I just want it to go away. Last week was spring. The snow had nearly melted everywhere around us. We weren't wearing our winter coats anymore. Then it started snowing .. again (even though the sun is shining ~ weird, I know). The last hurrah of winter? Probably. But it's the hardest snow of the year to take. It's April, people!!

Did you know that ...

every snowflake has its own unique six-sided shape and is different than all other snowflakes.

in the province of Prince Edward Island, where the soil is red clay, snowflakes often look pink because red dust from the soil is blown into the air and absorbed by the clouds.

... and the largest snowflakes ever recorded fell in Montana. The snowflakes were 15 inches in diameter.

Okay, I'll quit my griping now. Maybe I'll go to the store for some retail therapy today, and buy myself some garden seeds.
