I do not know about you, but we had a crazy storm this morning. You know the kind--where it sounds like cannons are firing all around and you feel like the house could explode at any moment. I guess that it is a message that it is definitely spring even though the thermometer keeps trying to dip down into the 30's. The good thing about the storm--rain. Here is to hoping that we aren't quite as dry as last year!
