What April Looks Like

Across the country, Mother Nature set all kinds of weather records - total snowfall accumulation, single storm snowfall accumulation, lowest low temperatures, lowest high temperatures, prolonged low temperatures, wind chills - this past winter and throughout the first weeks of spring. And while we (or is it just me?) typically think of the southern half of the country as somewhat protected from such severe weather and drastic temperature swings, I can assure you, this isn't the case…or at least it wasn't this year.

I'm not complaining though, because while those of us in Texas lived through a bit of snow ("HALLELUJAH!", sang the children), a few ice storms, and two straight months of winter-coat-temperatures, now that April has arrived we have started shedding our layers. No, the pools haven't opened yet ("NOOOO!", cried the children), but April in Texas - adventures at the park, baseball games, water fights, and playing the rain - doesn't look too shabby.

Especially when you compare it to April in Wisconsin…

My in-laws took these pictures just last week in Wisconsin.
