Sometimes it Snows in April
On the album Parade by Prince and the Revolution, there's a rather wonderful song called Sometimes it Snows in April. When I first heard that, I lived in a New Zealand city called Auckland that hadn't seen snow in my lifetime. the idea that it might snow somewhere in April seemed quite bizarre and difficult to imagine. Now I live in Scotland and there's no imagination required. Hell, it's been known to snow on Gala Day where I live, and that's usually celebrated in June - supposedly the beginning of summer!
