ODE TO THE WEATHERMAN OF IDAHO!!
So the weather in Rexburg is absolutely impossible. I have learned to never trust the weather predicitons here, not because the weatherman cannot be trusted, but because the weather here absolutely cannot be trusted. Also, I think for the local weather, there are mostly girls doing all of the reporting so I guess the Weather Girls cant be trusted. These past two weeks have been the most absolutely ridiculous weather I have ever been in. I have been beside myself with grief day in and day out watching the extreme weather right before my eyes. My hopes of spring have been dashed daily with snow, wind, rain and hail. Tons of snow on Easter was certainly not a dream come true. My memories of California Easter seemed so vague, me in my little spring dress and white shoes. Had a been dressed for easter here, I would have lost my white shoes in the snow and frozen to death in my Spring Dress. Those lovely spring days of budding trees and greening grass seem to be just days of yesteryear. Gone are the birds in the trees, gone are the lovely spring walks, gone are the..... well lots of things that I would normally associate with April are gone. Oh but wait one thing still remains. The snow! So while I try to make the best of this continuing winter weather, one and all enjoy the warmth for me!!
