April Fools

I had an extremely nasty computer virus on April Fool's Day.  This popped up on my screen -
followed by a million little warning windows.  It is a trojan virus that masquerades as a hard drive defragmenter.  When you read the warning box that tells you your computer is dying, it says that for $$$$$ they will fix it for you.  It took me all day to get rid of the sucker and restore my files.  I have no idea where I picked this up.  Other than blogging and looking at dreamhorse, I don't do a lot of surfing.  I hope this doesn't happen to you, 'cause it's a major pain.

April 2 isn't looking much better.  We are under a Severe Weather Alert with high winds and 4-8" of snow expected.  Our daffodils have just started blooming.  I brought the full blooms inside and left the buds on the plants.


Whine, whine, whine.
April snow showers bring May flowers, right?

Oh, I hate virus attacks. One time I got a lot of spyware and my laptop was totally disabled. It was so frustrating.
Yup... I cut our tulips and brought them inside. I hate that we are supposed to get so much snow.... but I love that we are getting moisture!

That's horrible, that virus. We just had a storm pass by with snow to 4,300 feet and flurries here at 4,141. How they knew that real snow would stop at 4,300 I don't know, but the hills across the way were covered, so they were correct. I love daffodils and the one in the photo is so pretty. I hope the rest survive to bloom at a later date.
