This past weekend, we saw hail, snow and rain all leading towards flooding and power outages. Many people are glad they haven't changed their snow tires yet and I had to drag out my snow boots again. Considering this is mid-April, I am more than a little miffed at Mother Nature.  I am okay with rain in April, but I would hope that I wouldn't be touching my winter boots again until at least November. To remind myself that it will get better, here are some books to lift the spirits and remind us that good weather is coming.
