The cats are very busy this afternoon shedding everywhere. I'm doing laundry and I am glad they are not helping.
But damn it I want daffodils and I WANT THEM NOW!!!!!! Not in photographic form but real.

Did the dim sum and a movie routine with Cami this afternoon. When I left the house noonish little snow pellets were falling from the sky. This turned to snow while at the restaurant and was continuing when we went into the movie. Upon exiting the movie the sun was shining and the temperate had risen about twenty degrees.
Went to see 42 and I highly recommend it. Cami was going to tweet a clever tweet about 42, you know the ultimate question and all. Crossovers are good. EtA: Cami on 42
Got home and the Purple Tomasinianus Species Crocus were open. They finally agreed it was warm enough. They will eventually take over the patch between the sidewalk and the road. This patch started with six a few years ago. I'm glad they are happy.
Some of the daffodils are thinking about opening but are not there yet. They are nearly a month later than last year and later than the last few actually.
It has been raining for days and it is still raining. On the way into school this morning I saw a Mallard pair at the bus stop on Cedar. Even ducks don't like the weather? It has been in the upper 30s this week with somewhere around 4 inches of rain.
Had a bunch of errands to do when I left school so I took the scenic tour. The river by the zoo is over it's bank but not yet to the houses on the other side of the road. Sycamore "No Longer A" Golf Course was a lake. Every lowish spot in the city is underwater. The MSU Golf Course is underwater but there the ducks aren't trying to flee town. Made a few more stops and then headed towards home. Had to stop for the flock of wild turkeys on the Trowbridge entry ramp.
Got home and took a picture of the poor Iris reticulata looking very cold in my front yard. All the crocus (crocuses or croci?) are tightly closed because "it is too damn cold out there".
