I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

      1. You’re welcome. Rain is certainly fine, but I don’t blame you for wanting the sun. We’ve been getting some of the sun and warm temperatures over here as of recently. At least it beats the two days of snow we got in April. UGGH!

      2. May was dull and wet, June is dull and wet, but we’re supposed to be in for record heat again this summer. Snow in April is okay if you live in the mountains or the Arctic Circle, otherwise…

      3. Sorry to hear about the dull months you had. Yeah, I’m certainly not near the Arctic Circle. Even by Midwest standards, it’s rare to get snow in April especially when it ended up being 6 inches on those days before going back up to the 50s Fahrenheit the next day. So bizarre…

      4. Yeah, and I’m starting to notice more of it with the insane weather. There has been severe flooding in the Midwest and the South recently. Even though it didn’t affect were I’m from, I do get concerned because there are tons of farmlands dealing with crops that have been damaged, so this could affect multiple food sources that are domestic and for importing.
