Spring snow

We have a visiting scientist in our lab till June from Nigeria, she came two weeks ago, and said she has never seen snow and was hoping to see some. Well the fates have agreed and today it is snowing. The snow that falls in the spring after the ground has worked is called Poor Man's Fertilizer. This may be a New England/Canada thing though - as Norma will attest that attourneys from Pennsylvania have never heard this term.

OH! When it snows in Chicago after I've seen the first Robin - I make a wish - it's very lucky. [then I say a prayer for the cold little birdie]
