Today, however, Maman Nature seems to be suffering from collective amnesia: we have backpedalled into the age of hail, thunder and lightening. Last night it was so cold I wanted to set my clothes on fire just to keep warm.
Please come back Spring. We won't ask where you've been or scold you for your absence. Promise.
