Old Man Winter, you suck.

Spring was here. I swear. I have flowers to prove it. And you had to come and ruin it for me. I knew it would be overcast and that was OK. I knew that it wouldn't be warm and that was OK. Spring came around. The calendar said so. The pagan people in Asheville said so. Easter is next week. Some birds were trying to eat my newly planted garden looking for nest material. You were out. But NOOOOO, you had to come back today. Like that garlic roll that I had at lunch and I can still taste 5 hours later. I can take the cold, the overcast day, but for you to come back and make it SNOW today. And an inch of top of that! That's was just cruel and unfair. To me, it was as if you lifted your cold dress (yea, I called it a dress, not a tunic), turned around and mooned me. Your cold, Old Man Winter. After all those posts where I defended you and snow and how much I love it. I don't care if you dump 30 inches of that crap in December. But today was one inch too many. I don't care that it didn't stick. See if I care next year. I hate you and my tulips hate you. Enough said.

Isn't it against the law or something for flowers to appear and then have snow later??

We didn't get the snow but the weekend ended with some heavy rain & now today it's W-I-N-D-Y.

Then tomorrow they are calling for temps to be in the 70's again. I think Mother Nature is PMSing or something.

How cruel is that??? I hate when the first flowers start to bloom, only to be crushed by snow and ice. It's patently unfair.

And about student loans-- they are SO much more expensive for grad school than undergrad. It's infuriating!
