This is April, Right?

It is April isn’t it?  My calendar says that it is Spring.  We woke this morning to 6″ of heavy wet snow here (only 1″ was predicted.).  The Weathermen are also predicting another 3-5″ of snow for Monday morning (4/4/16).  I know that I really shouldn’t complain after the mild Winter that we had this year, but enough is enough.

Local Little Leagues are starting to practice and many have their Opening Days scheduled for this upcoming weekend.  The State of Rhode Island DEM is also opening the 2016 Trout Fishing Season at 6:00am on Saturday, April 9… The high temperature for the day is predicted to be 36°!!!

The trees are starting to bud and the flowers are now in bloom, this is suppose to be Spring!!!  I know, it will come sooner or later and we will all be complaining this July when we have temperatures in the 90° range with 95% humidity, but SNOW IN APRIL IS SACRILEGIOUS!!!

The one good thing with getting snow at this time of year is that any snow that we do get, melts very quickly.  The angle of the sun in April warms up pavement and helps get rid of the white crap very quick.

Again, I know that I should not really be complaining about getting snow after the Winter that we had, but when I am shoveling snow on the Opening Day of Major League Baseball, there is just something wrong.

Mother Nature, you’re drunk, go home…

Although the calendar says Spring, Winter is still hitting us with a parting shot.
