I'll admit it. I prayed for snow. I wanted a snow day! Don't we all? Now, my fickle self has had enough of the snow. I know the weather isn't up to me but I'd be really okay with warmer temps, flowers, sunshine and balmy weather. However, those lovely things will have to wait. I am sad to say that more winter weather is on its way.
