Well, that’s because we have not yet celebrated Passover and/or Easter Sunday.
Priscilla brought that up yesterday (Sunday).
“People are complaining because the weather is so cold, but Easter is late this year,” she said. I said I hadn’t thought about that.
She is right, of course. Dogwoods are not yet blooming, but they have another month. (From my back door I can count 20 dogwood, when they are in bloom. It is neat, seeing all the white blossoms amid trees still unclad from winter.)
I said to Priscilla, “Winter will not leave as long as Jews are still enslaved in Egypt. The angel of death has not yet passed over.”
Over-spoken, but true.
