My river called DeNile is frozen

April 22, 2013 - Karin Elton
It’s getting harder and harder to maintain my delusion that it is not snowing outside. I’m trying to stick my head in the sand, but I can’t get to the sand because of the snow accumulation.

At our regular Monday staff meeting, a fellow reporter looked out the window and commented that snow was falling. I said, “no, those are eye floaters you see. No one else sees that but you.”

Later, someone came in from outside with a layer of white across the shoulders of her black coat and I proclaimed it to be a bad case of dandruff.

All winter long, I have been yearning for March, because while I know that March is very much winter in Minnesota, at least there is the hope of spring and lovelier weather in April. Ha!

Maybe May will be a snow-free month. I’m keeping my fingers crossed, although that’s hard to do with gloves on.
