Wellies and Umbrellas

The heavy rain we were forecast never hit so I'm going to do the 'Wellies and Umbrellas" blog, as promised, in honour of everyone back home in the snowy northwest (*waves in a vaguely northerly direction*).  I'm supposed to be going home this weekend so hopefully all the snow will be gone by then or I might have to rethink my plans for Easter.
