Now That Is Just Playing Dirty

April 4, 2011


Mother Nature:

GAME ON, Mother!

Couldn't take a little criticism pertaining to your "less than appropriate" dump of snow on my budded and flowered flora, huh? 

Seemingly, you and I are just not meant to be friendly this year.  My first note to you was friendly enough, I thought. I simply asked you to encourage Spring to be a little SPRING-like.

I will admit that my second letter was a tad firmer but I was hopeful that the pitiful picture of my deflowered Magnolia would elicit a little kindness from you.  But NO you chose retaliation, instead.  Really were the dropping temperatures (90 degrees  down to 43.... really??) gusting wind of 50 MPH, and the real nastiness on your part: the hail, necessary?   Did you really feel the need to bring Kansas City to it's knees? If that was your intent, WELL PLAYED, Mother.











OK, where do we go from here?  Now that you have done further damage to my plants and trees, are there any other mean spirited things up your sleeves?  What do you want from me?  I am totally prepared to grovel, if that would  make you happy.  At this point I am keeping a close eye on the sky. 





As you are aware you have already put me through a couple of tornadoes and yet I continue to try to make friends with you.  What do you want from me????


I am trying my best to be conciliatory and appease you but I am at a loss what exactly do you want?


Still trying to be pals,

Cheryl P.


PS The roof damage is on you!!!






The Good for the Day......No broken windows

The Bad for the Day....I want to get the garden started (sing to Pink's song)

The Weird for the Day....The Kansas City Chamber of Commerce says that one of the most asked questions they get from people that are not familiar with Kansas is, " How much like the movie the Wizard of OZ is Kansas?  The Chamber people aren't joking.  As I have said in the past and will say again, Idiocy is a growth industry.  (I see a lot of people getting rich in that line of work)

Obviously Mother Nature is seriously pissed off about something. Just what did you do?

Holy cow! Was that an example of the hail that you had?? I saw a pic on my local news of someone in MO that had hail the size of tennis balls....

The roller coaster in temps was the same on the MOARK border...mid 80's slamming into mid 30's with carry you up and over the car winds...NICE! Love, love, looooooove this time of year!!

Hi Michele,
I don't think it's me to blame. I keep a pretty low profile. I am prepared to blame the government, global warming, or any one you are mad at today. You supply a name and we will make it that person's fault.

Hi Jewell,
My brother lives near the MOARK line. If it got colder there than here in KC, I will be sure to call and rub it in. Although he probably would gloat about us getting golf ball size hail.
I am so ready for good weather to get here. It's coming, isn't it????

Jewell said...

Cheryl...yeah...I think saving a dime on the call might be worth the gloating in your ear.... =) It's since rebounded to mid 40's and apparently the wind didn't move out with the rain.....dammit! *sigh*

I hope it's coming!!! Soon! My picture taking finger is itching something awful...and I'm ready for the green to spring so I can go out and play photographer before the weather causes me to wilt and melt! =)

Oh heck you are scraping the barrel now aren't you! You got Jew-jew here! LOL Nah, I'm just kidding she is my sister! That hail is something else...I'd try to put a good word in for you with Mother Nature, but I live in Ohio...where if you don't like the weather wait a second it will change, she hates me! Great post!

Cheryl said...

Thats the phrase people toss around here too. Yeh, it changes all the time but the bad crap keeps showing up over and over and over. That Mother Nature isn't being nice this year. (it was 90 degrees yesterday and tonight we have freeze warnings) I am telling you that Mother can be a bitch.

Mother Nature is a fickle bitch.

And isn't Kansas just like it was in the Wizard of Oz?
