You have got to be kidding me

Here's a little quiz for this Monday morning. When was this picture, a view from my front door, taken?

A) In November
B) In December
C) In January
D) April 6, 2009

And the correct answer is: D!

I was trying to make this all fun and happy but quite honestly I am dismayed. Perplexed. Troubled. I realize this is Michigan and we can expect snow through, oh, June, but we've felt the warmth signaling spring is on the way. We saw the sun. Flowers poked their new little heads out of the ground. I was lulled into the false hope that we were done with winter.

Normally a patient girl, today I am channeling Veruca Salt from Willie Wonka: "I want spring and I want it now!"
