Before I get to the real point of this entry (such as it is), I have to say that today was the most sucessful day of my life in at least one key aspect: I managed to eat cheesecake for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Along with some other things, of course, things more usual at those various meals, but still: a major accomplishment, I believe. Only problem is it finished off the cheesecake very effectively. I guess that means my birthday is all over now.

Anyways, on to the real post!

This morning the air was moist and balmy, the birds were chirping charmingly in the trees and bushes, and, while I can't say that the sun was shining brightly, all was generally well with the world, weather-wise. Something happened over the course of the day, though, and now there's a couple inches of snow on the ground and a vicious cold wind is whipping at our house, as hard as I can remember a wind whipping since we've lived here (I notice it all the more now that we've been told our chimney is ready to basically fall off at any moment). The wintery blast didn't come up all of a sudden--precipitation moved from rain through sleet and ice pellets to proper snow, and the wind picked up gradually over the course of the day--but it was still a pretty impressive fake to all of us who thought spring was just about here. Still, you can't really mind snow now, even if you're sick of it, because we can be sure it won't stick around much longer.

I had an idea this morning that I should make a weather blog, and remove any pretension of talking about anything else. You know, I don't think that I'm talking about the weather all the time....
