042513

Hmmm. What happened to that "global warming" theory? For that matter, whatever happened to SPRING 2013?

We woke up to this today:

Yes. It IS beautiful. For January 25. But . . . today is APRIL 25, 2013. We haven't been without snow here in Central Wisconsin since November. 

Anyway, to make the best of an absurd situation, I preserved this epic sight with my camera. I then created a 12X12 layout in MDS (My Digital Studio) featuring my favorite photos. 

FYI, speaking of the wonderful MDS digital software, Stampin' Up! will have a special on all things MDS STARTING MAY 1. Watch for further details then. 

Smiles.

  6. Beautiful pictures. I thought it was still cold here in the UK but obviously not as cold as Wisconsin. I hope spring arrives for you soon.

    1. I'm not a "snow" kind of girl either -- thus all the photos were taken from windows INSIDE the house. :>)

  11. I know what you mean! We just got snow last night too! Not as much as you it looks like, but it's still frustrating! I share your pain north of the border!

    1. I wasn't sure what you mean about sharing my pain north of the border, so I checked out your blog. Duh -- you're Canadian! :>)

  12. Oh Wisconsin. And I was thinking about driving up there for vacation in July. Think it'll be spring by then? ;) I sure hope for your sake that it arrives sooner rather than later.
