Err, it’s snowing up here. That’s . . . unexpected, not to mention worrisome on a couple fronts: we’re taking fosteronfilm‘s dad in for some scheduled labwork today and I don’t like the idea of him being out in the cold and snow, and also we were planning on heading back to Georgia tonight. We can certainly handle some snow driving–fosteronfilm and I are both Midwestern-born and learned how to navigate snowy expanses–but I don’t like it.

Plus, it’s almost April. What’n heck is it doing snowing? Apparently I’ve forgotten some of the vagaries of the Midwestern climate.


Writing Stuff

Nothing on the new words front has happened for the last couple days, but I hadn’t expected it to.

– 15-day sale of “Shim Chung the Lotus Queen” to GrendelSong
– Status update from Aeon on a story I subbed there in December letting me know that they’re behind on their slush and catching up.
– A pair of Critters crits for “A Thread of Silk.”

    Yay, sale!

    Oh, and the critter is sitting in its mold-encrusted package waiting for you in GA.

    Why is it snowing in late March? That doesn’t sound so unusual to me, I rememeber one of the worst blizzards to hit the northeast happened in April. Of course it could be GLOBAL WARMING! (que scary music here!)

    It snowed here two days ago, so the Midwest isn’t alone in ignoring that day clearly marked on my calendar as the First Day of Spring. 🙂

    I’ve gotten out of the cold and driving in the snow habit as well. I serioulsy think my parents should come see me next Christmas. It is much warmer in Atlanta than in Missouri.

    Glad your father in law is doing better. Drive safe.

    Glad to know you’ve sold “Shim Chung and the Lotus Queen”. I remember it from critters, and it deserved to find a good home somewhere. Congrats !

    Snow that late in the year sure is odd. Not that I can say anything, it rarely if ever snows in Paris 😉

    That’s not only a Midwestern phenomenon, it’s cold down here too, and they are calling for possible snow this weekend in Northeast Georgia! What the heck is going on indeed…

    Having spoken, the doomsayer departs.

    vagaries of the Midwest? It snowed in SOUTH CAROLINA last night. Admittedly, not much into it, but the mountains. Parts of NC had over 4 inches last night.

    It’s been too cold to snow up here the past couple days. 32 degrees actually felt warm to me this morning.

    Yay for the sale!

    And keep us updated on your dad-in-law! :hugs: I’m still praying for all of you. :hugs again for good measure:
