Dear Ms. Nature,
Apparently you missed my emails, FB postings, phone calls and texts but by the calendar Spring officially launched on March 21, contrary to the mess that is brewing outside right now.
I appreciate that I have no real rights to complain, and that you can't pay attention to the requests of one lone person but I just wanted to point out that I have asked a couple of times recently for a reprieve from winter.
I also recognize that I am one of THOSE creatures that is part of THAT thing called humanity, and we've not been good stewards of that other Mother known as Earth and must make improvements. Nevertheless, I'm begging for a little spring to come our way.
From one mother to another I'm implore you, can we be done with winter now? If not for me, for my poor Poochie who is old, beleaguered and rather naked of her winter coat.
Mother (*&^%$# Done Already
