We've had quite a winter this year. January wasn't too bad, but February made up for it. It's been a season of school cancellations, and lots of evening events like the Bible study I go to on Tuesday night. I think we cancelled 3 times in 5 weeks!
Winter has never been my favorite, but I take solace in its beauty, and the fact that it makes Spring all the better. :) I've been seeing posts from people who are talking about their Spring bulbs coming up, but our yard is still covered in snow. Spring arrives this week, but in West Michigan the prediction is below average temperatures and above average precipitation - AKA more snow! As a matter of fact, there's a snow storm going on right now.
However, as Eeyore said - we don't have earthquakes (or hurricanes) here. And - Spring is on the way!
