Beyond our Control




We can fuss and kick and scream
And shake our fists up at the sky
We can beg, wheedle and scheme
Or sit upon the floor and cry

We can plan, predict and pray
Plead and ponder and cajole
In the end the truth remains
The weather, we cannot control

We can plan many events but never the weather to go with it.

The school kids are happy today. Buses cancelled, schools closed. 
I can't remember this ever happening this late in April!
