I wore a pair of my peep toe heels to school on Tuesday.
It was the first time I didn’t wear stockings or socks since, well…2012.
I figured it was time to officially welcome spring by showing off my painted toes.
After all, corn planting was in full swing…
The apricot trees had started to bloom…
The flowers in the yard started springing up…
…and started blooming, too.
Besides, I figured since everything was starting to bloom– and after last week’s freak snow– spring was right around the corner.
As in right around the corner by hours.
Or maybe a few days at the most.
Remember how I mentioned that it snowed last week?
Well…it ICED today.
Yes, ICE in APRILl!!
Technically it started last night and kept going for the majority of today.
Luckily, Adam put the vehicles in the shop last night.
Well…at least my vehicle.
When I went outside this morning to get my car warmed before leaving for school this is what I found…
To be honest, I’m surprised we still have power.
Lines are down all over the county.
Ice can get pretty heavy.
It made for a slow drive to and from school today, too.
I am thankful for the much needed moisture we’ve received from this storm.
I’m also praying the wheat is ok.
We can survive without our farm fresh apricots for a year.
We need the wheat to pay the bills.
And by the looks of things around here…
There’s a pretty solid coat of ice on everything right now.
I think it’d be smart to put my peep toes away for a few more days, too.
In fact, I’m planning on digging out the socks for tomorrow!
Yep, that looks familiar, though we hadn’t started planting corn. We’ll see how the wheat fares. K-State Extension says it will be a few days before we know for sure. You can’t deny the beauty, even in the face of possible crop calamity, I suppose. Hoping for the best!
