Man oh man did I dodge a bullet. Ya see, earlier this week we here in Buffalo were supposed to get slammed by a bad Nor'easter that was going to dump a foot and a half of heavy wet snow on us. My brother Ozzy was THRILLED, this is his type of weather, I was not thrilled. I sat back saying "Are you kidding me mother nature, it's the end of April!"...ya see, I happened to like the days of going outside to do my business naked, having bonfires in the backyard with the mamie and the neighbors, and falling asleep comfortably with the windows letting fresh air flow in...I was instantly mad at whomever ticked mother nature off this bad.
Well, everything was setting up perfectly, the air was chilly, and rain had come in as it was supposed to, we had the generator ready to go (because heavy wet snow is notorious for knocking power lines down), we were prepared. The snow moved in about 9am as anticipated, but wasn't sticking. I didn't get too excited though and Mr. Weather Man said that it would take til later in the day to stick because the ground was too warm. Around 10:30am it was beginning to stick, Ozzy was the happiest I've seen him, running around, catching snow on his tongue, and then it happened...the temps spiked up a bit, the snow turned to rain, and everything melted. Ozzy immediately went into a state of depression, literally as he curled himself up into a husky ball and napped his day away, now, it was my turn to do a happy dance, and boy did I...goodbye snow!
In other news, Tuesday was my grandma's birthday! Mommy had flowers delivered to her and signed my name and everything...see I'm a good catch! In sadder news, Tuesday also would have been my Papa Meaty's birthday...he'd have been 10 whole years old! If you're reading this up at the bridge Meaty I hope they threw you a HUGE party with all of your favorite treats and toys!!!!
Mommy has ANOTHER nursing test coming up on Monday and ya know what that means...more stress! UGH, I swear, all they do is take one test after another after another, and I've heard mumbling that the week after this test is something called a final exam which as I understand it means she gets tested on EVERYTHING she's already been tested on before getting a few month break for summer! She has a countdown going, I think I'll join in...May 7th, come fast!!!!
Alright well, it's pretty dark and dreary here today which means it's perfect nap weather for me! I'm gonna go curl up on the couch and sleep for a while!
