Yesterday, at some point during the afternoon in Columbus, Ohio, there were snow flurries blowing around like its hair was on fire (talk about fire and ice). Snow can be fun and an incredible sight, but not this kind of snow and cold. I had the shades drawn in my office, so it was a genuine shock looking out my co-workers window as I was preparing to leave. “What in the world? I thought Winter was ‘technically’ over?”
Driving home, there was no visibility beyond 15 feet in front of my car. Didn’t Spring kick-off on March 20th? Of course, it is Ohio, so…
Still, the calendar is only days away from flipping into April. This means that instead of relentless snow we shall (surely) now endure relentless rain. However, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s certainly better than any Polar Vortex!

Even though it’s usually better to wish for no rain as opposed to rain, it has the potential to bring with it a fun, magical purpose.
It’s like traveling back in time to our childhood when we just went with things as they came about, which can certainly be a good thing every once in a while in between the daily grind.
If nothing else, at least there’s no frost with rain!
