Let The Sunshine Come

Instead of hearing people singing for winter song Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow, i can just imagine many of them mumbling inside their heads, No More Snow, No More Snow, No More Snow, and let the sunshine come. Certaintly, not all parts in the world have the same climates and weather, but for people in areas like northern United States, north-west US (like OR, WA, northCA) and north-east US (like NY, CT, etc), China, Alaska, Canada, etc, there are probably some who wish that winter will be over until next season. Many parts of northern CA had been hit with successive winter storms both rain and snow since the start of the year 2008, and there is still no sign of spring except for the displays in stores.

The other day, we were watching the NEWS show on telivision that featured Ground Hog Day, and according to the myth, that if you will lift the Ground Hog up in the air and will create a shadow, it means that there will still be six (6) more weeks of winters, and the Ground Hog that they featured in the NEWS that day (Ground Hog Day) produced a shadow, meaning winter is not over yet.

We went to a store today and my hubby is abviously so ready for spring too. In our shopping cart, you could find three (3) small peach trees, a huge box of Miracle grow plants vitamin, two (2) huge plant pots, and a big roll of weed control mat. All of them are gardening items, so they will be stored temporarily in our shed until spring is here, when we ca actually do gardening again.

Hope you all have great weather out there! What is the weather like where you live?
