Nebraska has not seen the light of day in weeks.
The presence of the sun has been zero...nada, zip, zilch.....for nearly three weeks.
I've lost track.
Sunday morning I got up from the couch to let the dogs out. I'd just taken a shower, and was sitting around in my bathrobe, trying to work up the motivation to get dressed and get on with my day.
I walked to the dining room, opened the sliding glass door....and just stood there.
And stood some more.
I rubbed my eyes.
I shook my head a few times.
More eye rubbing.
"I must be seeing things."
"Nope, I think it's real. The sky....."
I closed the door, and went downstairs to my closet to get dressed. While I was down there, I switched laundry from the washer to the dryer. I folded a load of dried clothes. I put on my shoes and socks.
I went back upstairs....looked outside....and it was cloudy.
We went from not a cloud in the sky, back to depressing in less than 1/2 an hour.
With head lowered, and shoulder slumped, I walked to the couch, curled up under a blanket, and watched TrueBlood episodes for the next couple of hours.
OK, OK...for the next like 5 hours.
The next time the dogs wanted to be let out, I opened the door and......
"No friggin' way."
"It can't be."
Rubbing my eyes.
Shaking my head.
More eye rubbing.
"Is that..........? NO...can't be."
We got a good couple of inches over the course of the afternoon.
All the grass that was finally showing was now gone again. The piles and piles of snow throughout the city finally melting were added to.
At the gym this morning, the weatherman told me that it was going to be sunny...not partly sunny, not partly cloudy....sunny....starting tomorrow.
I ignored the part where he said the highs were going to be in the single digits.
Because the sun will be out!!!!!!!!!
Bring it on!!!! :-)
