Happy Spring!
« on: March 01, 2014, 06:30:38 AM »
Well, meteorologically speaking at least.

The dog an I woke up to sunshine and birds chirping this morning.  Granted, it's hovering around zero and a foot of snow is bearing down on us, but technically it's spring.

Really? I always thought that the 1st day of Spring was March 21st or something...


Well, meteorologically speaking at least.

I disagree, "meteorogically".

Just got done shoveling the 2 inches of snow i got last night. More expected tonight.

Going to a friends tonight to watch the Hockey game. The snow is expected to start around game time. This should be good.

The kids are talking maybe big snow and even the big boys have already committed to "5 or more inches" like they did last time a couple day out and we got 16.  Monday morning should be fun.  :)

It was a legitimate break. I've been doing a lot of O/T to pay for Volkswagen parts.

The snow is starting to wear me down.

I'm thinking about giving up taking breaks. They were fun when I started but now I'm just not into them like I was.

I'll probably pass them along to another coworker who will enjoy them more. :thumbsup:
