A Poem I wrote

Beyond Semi-precious

Lapidolite, Dumorterite, Iolite

even the sedimentary syllables shine

nutured by nature

colored by the earth


fossilized blooms

petrified sunsets

envelop me

Snow Day in April!

Just when you think spring is here and you can get out the flip-flips and the shorts, BAM! Mother Nature has something else in mind - A great big snowstorm! This type of weather event is not entirely unheard of in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Living here, you come to expect things like this. I'm not complaining. I get a day off from work.

And to think it was 71 degrees last week!

I heard the UP got snow. Where are you? We have a house in Vulcan. My hubby and father in law are heading up to fish the Minominee River in May.

I remember when I lived in Minot, ND we would have days like that. Now, we get 1/2 inch of snow and we get a snow day. LOL Loved your picture.

Ick! You poor thing, that's the last thing we want in April! Hope it melts quick! :D

Beautiful picture. They call for a snow day around here when there's a chance of snow in the forecast. :)

I wish spring would show up and stick around for a while! We're having strange weather here in Iowa as well! No snow at least!

Our California weather has been doing weird stuff like that too...not snowing but super cold one week and the next 100 degrees...no kidding! Great photo by the way.
