April is the month that the snow finally melts in the Yukon. It’s a chilly, muddy month. A month for the last of the cross country skiing before you get too far into the calendar. For jumping on the trampoline in your wool socks and hoodie, mud boots kicked off and lying to the side. A month where detritus melts out of snowbanks full of gravel, a winter’s worth of dog poop revealed in the yard, plastic bags blowing in the wind. April brings the first rain we’ve seen in 6 or 7 long months. The rain that comes to take the away the snow, wash the winter from your soul.
I’m going to give the Blogging From A-Z in April challenge a shot. That’s one blog post per day April (except Sundays). That’s 26 blog posts. One for each letter of the alphabet. Wish me luck!
