It's Spring, it's Minnesota... and the sun is evidently a Minnesotan, too, because it's obviously decided to skedaddle to someplace a little less unpredictable in the weather department.
You DON'T want to come here for Spring Break.
We've had our April showers - but mostly that's been snow showers, rather than the rain that supposedly brings May flowers. If I take my parents' lawn as evidence, April snow showers bring May moles. Which are rather antithetical to flowers, actually**.
So I'm thinking that in our case, April showers bring June/July/August mosquitos. Every state needs some sort of specialty crop, right?
Better enjoy May, folks. Moles and all...
**Although Moley rather enjoyed flowers, if my memories of "The Wind in the Willows" serves. That said, my parents' moles seem to be more interested in excavation than they seem to be inclined towards messing about in boats, regardless of the fact that they are located only a block or two from the river. So their taste in landscaping is probably similarly suspect.
