Single Shot Monday: [blah-blah-blah]…

Stop It!

I can hear Donna Moss, from the Life On Mars episode of West Wing, like an earworm in my head. A bird keeps pecking on the window. Every damn time the bird pecks, Donna says, “Stop it.”

Well… Mama Weather was pecking on my window this weekend with a fury. And I say, Stop It!

It’s supposed to be April showers. Didn’t you get the memo, Mama W?!

This image is from a December, 2013 ice storm in my neck of Ontarioland. We had a repeat this weekend. If you were unlucky, you had the 100 km/h winds, the snapped tree limbs, the power outages, the school closures, the transit chaos, the…

This is what today’s post looked like when I began. The bokeh is a bonus. You’re welcome. Go ahead. Click that bigger.

It’s what all posts look like at the start, except Tuesday is I’ll Take Your Answers instead of So, Wednesday — In Other News, Friday — True Confessions. Thursday is Throwback Thursday. I’m experimenting with structuring M-F content a titch to see how that flies. Bloggers do stuff like that.

And Monday is in the house.

Own. It.
