One thing that got me through was making a list of the things I knew I'd have time to blog about once school was over. That list is long, but it's slowly getting shorter...
Next up: a phenomenon right in my own back yard!
I so wish that I would have been able to get pictures taken in stages, but, you'll just have to believe me. The snow in our back yard melts from the tree outward!
If one of you science
I would think that the snow would melt around the edges of our yard first because that is the snow that isn't in the shade of our big oak tree. But, apparently the shade doesn't matter because we have one HOTT tree! :)
Has anyone ever seen anything like this? I sure know I haven't.
Which brings me to my next question: can I count this as one of my firsts? If I am able to figure out how to do those handy-dandy blog poll type things, I'll totally do one for this. But, if I can't, please just let me know what you think in the comments!
And before you answer, you should know that I can almost guarantee this picture was indeed taken in 2008. In fact, did you know it snowed on April 12th and April 19th in Kansas this year? APRIL! What is this world coming to?!
