It's been snowing and sleeting for 3 days without stopping.  It's April.  Come ON!  Hopefully this'll stop before the Retreat next weekend in Park City.

This is the weekend that we used to do our annual "cactus flower hunt" in St George.  Here's what April used to mean to us:

And here's what we get this April:

We planted new flowers and plants last weekend along with doing tons of work to level out the backyard and put down new top soil and grass seed.  The ground is supposed to stay wet.  I guess we've got that covered.  But I'm not sure those little seeds or the new plants will survive this!

We went to the rock and gem show here as a great indoor activity today.  Isaac went there earlier this week for a field trip and begged to take the whole family.  Now all the kids are happily trading the rocks they got there and everyone is marveling at the amazing designs and beautiful stuff that you can dig out of the ground. I love all the nature has to offer.  Even this darn snow, I guess.  I'll appreciate springtime all the more.

What a great radio event! Julie is a close friend of mine-- she adds a lot to everything she does (as do you) and I worked for Enid both in D.C. and in her SLC District office. Can we hear the reairing of your show sometime? I'd love to listen to it.

Oh, we feel the same way in our mountain home. It is snow, snow and much more snow!! Where is spring???

Wow. The disparity between George and Ogden is pretty huge! I'm with you. Done with the snow and ready for warm sun. Holding on...

I have to say that I'm sort of glad we've been gone. It may have rained in Ireland and England but at least it's not snow. It IS pretty. Just glad that I can see if from afar!
