f is for first flower

Not nearly as exciting as Mel’s lovely reticulated iris, but it is the first flower I saw around here…on Wednesday of this week.

But, when I looked up, this is what I saw, snow along the Arsenal parking lot.  It was hard enough to walk on.

For Cathy-Cate and her Gothlet… We’d walked on that snow¬†closer to the river and saw Plecopterans! I knew what they were only afterwards, when we googled “snow bug” and found this and our newest intern said ‘Stoneflies’!

This morning? As many of you know… more snow.

And looking across the river

(notice the little ice floe?)

But I heard from someone in my family (what is her relationship? who knows…family!) that where she lives (Steamboat Springs), they’ve had over 500 inches of snow!

Did you see that hilarious you tube link in the comments? Thanks Patricia! The frau put it up over on her site, so you can visit there and see it directly. Thanks!!!!! And you should go check out the link to high fashion (what 30′s designers thought we in 2000 would be wearing) over at Chappy’s Mom’s. Far OUT. (how’s that for dweeby, Juju?)

I think I’m going to bed now… that spinning class is tomorrow (!!!!!!!!) and I fear that I’ve been exposed to some crud floating around these parts…….

    Wow! I don’t miss the snow, however, I would love to see the Kennebeck from the old store as things get moving (or should I say melting?).

    What can I say? I have a teenage driver and I am pretty glad he isn’t hovering around in a spacecraft-it’s scarry enough having him driving around on the ground.

    Miss ya’ sis…
