Snow–in April!

Yup, snow in April.  And not just a dusting.  041514_001We had at least an inch, or more.  It’s the 16th (this happened on Monday the 14th) – and we still have some in the crooks of the trees.  This could make me move south.  ■  Holly made shrimp etouffee tonight.  Delicious.  I’m up here posting, but may go back down for some more.  ■  Started cleaning out the basement today.  Stuff to throw away and stuff for a garage sale.  And organizing the basement for band practice.  Yes, putting a band back together.  Lots of work, but lots of fun.  ■  Too early for bed, but yet it’s time for bed – TFB.  ■  ‘night.

Spring is here–I believe. . . . .

All of the snow is gone except for some shrinking piles in parking lots.  Those get smaller 041014_001every day.  ■  The hard drive on my pc started to fail.  The monitor also looked to be failing, but that may have had something to do with the hard drive – doesn’t seem likely, but who knows.  I backed my stuff up to an external hard drive and bought a new pc.  Not an expense that I was looking for.  Got the new pc and it has Windows 8 on it.  Yuk.  I’ve got it looking and acting more like Windows 7 now.  Still in the process of re downloading programs that I had on the old pc.  Still a bit to go before I’m totally back in business.  ■  Going to a band practice tonight.  Don’t know if it’ll turn into anything, but it should be fun.  ■
