If April showers bring May flowers, what do April snowstorms bring? They bring a stopping of time. Here in Northeast Ohio we are experiencing unbelievable snows - feet, not inches. And while we were prepared and more than ready for the warmth of Spring, this weather has brought about something unexpected.
A chance to stop - literally. The roads are so bad, and the snow so deep that to go out would be silly. So, here we are, building snow bunnies - in honor of Easter. We're playing in the snow, drinking hot chocolate and laughing as the dog bounds under and through the mounds.
If we'd been enjoying Spring weather, the kids would be elsewhere, riding bikes, playing with friends. Instead, we are all together, enjoying one last gasp (I hope) of Winter. There really is something to be said for snow.
