It's the middle of April and winter just refuses to die. The snow was melting painstakingly slowly, and the river is just starting to break up.

My hockey season ended up 3 weeks ago, and I'm patiently waiting for summer to grab hold sometime this year.

I woke up this morning, only to have to brush newly fallen snow off the car, about 2" total by the end of the day.

I'm really starting to consider a move quite a bit south, maybe Texas. I know there are a few of you out that way.
