Fool Me Once, Fool Me Twice, April Fools is not so Nice

Here’s a picture of what it looks outside my window on this “spring” day. Ok maybe it’s a bit higher up in the mountains than right outside my window…but the point stays the same, it is still winter! With Switzerland having just had it’s coldest March since 1987 & the UK since 1962! Let alone the rest of Europe which is equally as cold.

If April showers brings May flowers, then March snow just brings more snow.

I wish I could say ‘April fools’, but unfortunately it is a reality. Europe is being frozen over it seems and winter is enjoying its long over-stayed presence with us this year. I guess a few snowboarding & snowshoeing days wouldn’t hurt, though my skin could use a much needed vitamin-D tan.

On days like these, I can’t help but quote my friend Eeyore again…on being optimistic…through times of cold weather…

“It’s snowing still,” said Eeyore gloomily.

“So it is.”

“And freezing.”

“Is it?”

“Yes,” said Eeyore. “However,” he said, brightening up a little, “we haven’t had an earthquake lately.”

You’re right Eeeyore, we haven’t had an earthquake lately. Good point.
