Wouldn't Take Nothin' for My Journey
I looked out the window this morning, and this is what "Spring" had for Salt Lakers. Yep. That's my backyard covered in snow.
At first I thought of the Seven Brides for Seven Brothers' song: "June Bride, Reprise."

March comes in like a lion, what else?
Still the snow never melts.

April showers will come, so they say.
But they don't, and it's May.
Then I could just hear my cousin saying, "That's why I moved back to Florida."
After that, I took another moment, stared at the mountains, breathed in the cold wet air, and I thought to the myself, "Well, Sara Lyn, I'll always wish you were here. But I wouldn't trade these grand peaks of the North or the red rock of the South, if it snowed until August, and I never saw the ocean again."
