What Happened to Spring??!

It just keeps snowing!  It has been an extremely snowy April in Minneapolis this year.  The snowiest April since 2002, we got 14 inches of snow from April 1st to the 18th.  And it's snowing again right now, with an expected accumulation of 8 inches.  Crap.

Snowy alley... 

Snow-covered cable wires and power lines

Snowy, silent street

Fat 'lil robin is so confused!  April 20th, 2013

The really difficult thing about this weather is that we're having to postpone our plans for the yard.  We need to take down the really big tree in the yard, because it's where K will be building her garage, and it's at least half-dead anyway.  With every storm this year, we worried about branches coming down and hitting the power lines.

So, here it's near the end of April and K's garage is still only a plan.  No tree down, no space ready, no permits pulled.

For now, we just have to keep hoping the snow will end and the sunny days will arrive.  At the end of this week, we are supposed to have 70 degrees and sun.  But the way this spring has been, we can't be sure it will stay!
