Chronic Grace

Finding the Grace in a Life With Chronic Illness

There is a Winter Weather Advisory out for the Minneapolis-St Paul metro area this afternoon and evening, and we are supposed to get around 4+ inches of snow, although how much we will actually get is anybody’s guess, as the forecasters haven’t gotten it right once yet this winter. This has proved another wimpy winter by Minnesota standards, especially for those of us who were children in the 1970s and ’80s. Still, although I’m sure there are snowboarders and skiers who are excited for snow, and I must admit that snow is prettier than our current brown and drab color scheme, I am ready for spring. Sunshine, blue skies, and flowers, please: tulips, hyacinths, lilacs and peonies…If you know how I feel, here are some tulip pics to keep you going until the real thing starts growing outside.

    1. What a crazy early spring we had! Both in Minnesota and Boston…hopefully the crazy part is over and we can settle into the lovely part now of blossoms and blooms…

    We’re expecting 16-20 inches between Tuesday and Wednesday. I am hoping the forecasters are wrong, but it looks like a pretty sure thing. 😦
    These photographs are just beautiful, and remind me of summer.
    Have a wonderful week ahead!

    1. Thank goodness this is all behind us! Although we are into allergy season here…it’s worth it, waiting for our crabapple to blossom!
