There are appropriate times and places for snow. Like the winter. Or Antarctica. But April and snow go together like oil and water. It’s inconvenient, it’s annoying and it’s — brrr — COLD!
While it might now affect many, it caused headaches for many in the high school sports world over the weekend.
There were baseball, softball and soccer games snowed out — and it takes a lot to cancel a soccer game, so you know it must’ve been falling pretty good. The biggest snowout of all was probably at Snohomish’s Eason Invitational, a track and field meet featuring over 50 schools and 1,000 athletes. Like soccer, it takes a lot to cancel a track meet, but this one is a biggie, with rescheduling that many schools and athletes a logistics nightmare.
But hey, the skiing is probably good. Yeah. Go skiing. In April. It’s snowing in April.
