The Dickens, You Say!

“The sky was dark and gloomy, the air was damp and raw, the streets were wet and sloppy. The smoke hung sluggishly above the chimney-tops as if it lacked the courage to rise, and the rain came slowly and doggedly down, as if it had not even the spirit to pour.” – Charles Dickens

It has been an interesting weekend, weather-wise. Yesterday and last night, we had torrential rain with thunder showers thrown in the mix through the night, and right now, it’s snowing at a good pace just outside my window. Such is fickle March, I suppose. March snow, makes things grow? Let’s hope.

The extra hour of daylight was most welcome today. At 7:00pm, there was still lots of light in the sky. The change of time alone seems to bring nice weather an inch closer.

My FIL is in hospital with some minor cardiac trouble. He has a history of MI’s, but this is unrelated, apparently. He has some sort of viral infection that’s causing his BP to drop dramatically and cause him to feel just plain sick. So we’ve been busy shuttling Charlie’s Mom back and forth. The weekend flew by.

And to that end, I really have nothing of interest or wit to post this evening — but I’ll be working on something more worthy for tomorrow.
