Look at the photo I took a few minutes ago. The car's all nice and clear, it must not be too bad out there. Uh, no. I went to work this morning that's why it's cleared off. Can you see my sidewalk? Neither can I! According to the Edmonton Journal, this blizzard's the worst April storm to hit city in nearly 20 years. Don'tcha wish you lived here?
Today I shall stay put and maybe do some Spring Cleaning. Now that's an ironic thought, eh?

What a day to come home to. This weather kind of suits my mood. I'm glad I can run away from it in a few days. I am looking forward to some California sun to warm up my heart.
