Hannah before school one rainy nearly-spring morning
Our monster size umbrella
"I'm so glad I don't have to get out in the rain!"
Living in Oklahoma, though spring also ushers in tornado season. There is something both terrifying and thrilling about living in Tornado Alley. Yes, it is scary to be woken up in the middle of the night to the shrill cry of tornado sirens. But only in this area of the country will you find that when the sky turns that eerie, sickly pre-storm green color, people everywhere go out on their front porches and into the streets to stand and stare at the approaching bad weather. We even get our cameras out and document the event. And don't even get me started on the weathermen around here. They live for the excitement of spring!
More than anything, I love spring because it symbolizes new life. After the long months of brown dead grass and grey skies, it is so wonderful to see flashes of color. Living, breathing, beautiful color.
What do you love about spring?
