Post 1530. Tuesday May 16
My window was covered with ice this morning. I scraped some off and peered outside. Everything in my little garden was frozen stiff. The sky was very grey. The weatherman on the radio said it was going to snow later. Excellent!
I put on lots and lots of clothes, I polished the bottom of a tea tray, I strapped tennis rackets to my feet, I put a tea cosy on my head, I stuck my hands in some oven gloves, I got a couple of bamboo canes from the shed and I climbed to the top of a hill. Then I stood on my tea tray and waited for it to snow. And I waited...and waited…and waited...
...and it started to rain.

Ho hum, it only snows when you're not watching *grin*ReplyDelete
I think you are right Shadow! Cheers!Delete
Ha, this sums up all the problems with the romantic vision of a winter wonderland. Great fun.ReplyDelete

Ho hum, the eternal wait when you want it desperately. Lovely writing Keith.ReplyDelete
The story of my life neel! Cheers.Delete
Hi Keith - snow in April is ok, but May ... no ways! But equally we could do with the rain ... but a fun read and the thought of waiting at the top of the hill ... like Jill with a bucket or pail of water ... for it to snow - November maybe ... now I sincerely hope not!! Cheers HilaryReplyDelete

Sometimes i think the weather reporters have a warped sense of humor!ReplyDelete
That's one explanation! Thanks so much.Delete
I'm getting the visual. In my next life I am going to be a weatherman/lady. How else can you make a living being perpetually wrong?ReplyDelete
An excellent plan Denise!Delete
