Think Spring!

So, I'm watching the Doppler radar showing ominous pictures of snow, well, everywhere, and now I'm looking out the window and the dang white stuff is already falling, and falling fast. A foot or more is expected before it's all over, and I can see the streets clearing as people head for some place warm. I am thinking fondly of the snow blower, and will probably take it out this afternoon before Mr. Jespah comes home.

Maryland, home of my brother, is buried, in, what, 18 inches of snow. I hope my brother tied a flag to my nephew's hood so we don't lose him in the drifts. West Virginia reportedly has two feet of snow. Snow in the center of the country. Arctic blasts all over. Flooding in California. Brr, cold, cold, cold - ack, I can't take it any more!

Please post encouraging photos and messages of Spring and warmth, so that I don't go any more out of my mind than I already am. Thank you.

And for a little later in the year, Cole Porter's "It's Too Darn Hot" from Kiss Me Kate:

Quote:
It's too darn hot,
It's too darn hot.
I'd like to sup with my baby tonight,
And play the pup with my baby tonight.
I'd like to sup with my baby tonight,
And play the pup with my baby tonight,
But I ain't up to my baby tonight,
'Cause it's too darn hot.

It's too darn hot,
It's too darn hot.

I'd like to stop for my baby tonight,
And blow my top with my baby tonight.
I'd like to stop for my baby tonight,
And blow my top with my baby tonight,
But I'd be a flop with baby tonight,
'Cause it's too darn hot.

It's too darn hot,
It's too darn hot.

I'd like to fool with my baby tonight,
Break ev'ry rule with my baby tonight.

I'd like to fool with my baby tonight,
Break ev'ry rule with my baby tonight,

But, pillow, you'll be my baby tonight,
'Cause it's too darn hot.

According to the Kinsey Report
Ev'ry average man you know
Much prefers to play his favorite sport
When the temperature is low,
But when the thermometer goes 'way up
And the weather is sizzling hot,

Mister Adam
For his madam.
Is not,

'Cause it's too, too
Too darn hot,
It's too darn hot,
It's too darn hot.

It's too darn hot,
It's too darn hot.
I'd like to call on my baby tonight,
And give my all to my baby tonight.

I'd like to call on my baby tonight,
And give my all to my baby tonight.

But I can't play ball with baby tonight,
'Cause it's too darn hot.

It's too darn hot,
It's too darn hot.

I'd like to meet with my baby tonight,
Get off my feet, mm, with my baby tonight.

I'd like to meet with my baby tonight,
Get off my feet with my baby tonight.

But no repeat with baby tonight,
'Cause it's too darn hot.

It's too darn hot,
It's too darn hot.

I'd like to coo to my baby tonight,
And pitch the woo with my baby tonight.

I'd like to coo to my baby tonight,
And pitch the woo with my baby tonight.

But, pillow, you'll be my baby tonight,
'Cause it's too darn hot.

According to the Kinsey Report
Ev'ry average man you know
Much prefer to play his favorite sport
When the temperature is low,
But when the thermometer goes 'way up
And the weather is sizzling hot,

Mister Gob
For his squab.
A marine,
For his queen.
A G.I.
For his cutie-pie
Is not,

'Cause it's too, too
Too darn hot,
It's too darn hot,
It's too, too, too, too darn hot.
