Mother Nature

I just want to point out that Mother Nature has a sick, sick sense of humour. Here it is, 2/3 of the way through May, and Northern Alberta is getting snow. Yes, you read that right. The white, fluffy stuff associated with Christmas and cold weather. Frosty the Snowman and all that jazz. Now let me ask you, does that seem even remotely right? Nope, I didn't think so!

Fortunately for me, I'm traveling for work, so I'm in sunny, hot, humid Houston right now. And really, it's not that humid, but when you're used to a dry heat, humidity is killer. With the air conditioning on inside, the contrast in temperature between buildings and outdoors is akin to the temperature difference between Texas and Alberta. However, since there's no snow, I refuse to complain. The skies are a very bright, sunny blue, and there isn't a cloud to be seen. I plan to enjoy my summer vacation before heading back to the Great White North.

Hopefully wherever you are, it's not snowing. And if it is . . . well . . . that just sucks.

Hopefully the snow will be gone by the time you get back home. Living most of my life in Northern Michigan, we have had rare events of snow in July! Luckily it doesn't last long.
Enjoy your business/vacation time!

Tee hee hee. At least you aren't home to witness mother nature's joke.
