Misery, Thou Name Art SNOW

Two days ago, it was in the low to mid 80s. It was warm and lovely and the grass was getting all green and flowers were starting to bloom and...


This is today.

It is SNOWING.

It's the worst kind of snow. I mean, first of all, it's MAY snow, which I'm not sure has ever happened before in the history of my life, but it's a wet slushy mess once it hits the ground. There was a good 2-3" lake of water in my parking lot at work, resulting in drenched boots and drenched socks and freezing cold feet by the time I made it the hundred feet or so from my car to the front doors of my office.

I'm totally sitting barefoot at my desk right now. Which is probably the only thing keeping me from getting hypothermia or pneumonia or whatever things you get from being soaked in cold water.



I'm also quite certain that this is the first time in my 20+year softball career that practice has been called on account of snow.

Which would be an interesting novelty if it wasn't sending me into panic mode because our first set of games is NEXT SATURDAY and I've only had one practice with the whole team so far. I had one practice IN THE RAIN because: desperate times, desperate measures, etc, but only four girls showed up.

Ugh. Nature, we're going to have a Serious Discussion about this when I get home.
