And so April arrives. The weather is pleasant, finally. Not exactly cozy, but not so cold. The crocuses are up and the day lilies are pushing their way out of the ground too. Another few weeks and it will REALLY feel like spring.
Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: March 25, 2018
Spring was a week ago and a few minutes ago, snowflakes were drifting from the sky. It wasn’t much of a snow and only lasted a few minutes, but it isn’t quite the weather for which we have been hoping.
Cold, mainly. I think — I believe — the snow or at least any significant amount of it, is finished. But the temperatures are well below normal and I’m ready to get out of heavy sweaters and into something a little more frivolous and lightweight.
Oddballs. I have been taking a lot of strange pictures in the house. The outside has been difficult to negotiates. Garry, though, has been out there, frozen fingers and all. Kudos to him!
Although a lot of snow has melted, especially on areas that get a lot of sun, there’s still plenty around elsewhere.
The woods is full of snow and along the road, there are huge piles of it created by the plows.
It’s a good time to follow Gibbs’ lead: enjoy the sofa. Have another cup of coffee!
Oddly enough, after all the wind and rain … it’s still gray and cold. Usually, following a major storm, we get a couple of bright sunny days. The wind and rain clear the air and I look forward to the sun coming out.
Not this time. We are still in a mix of ever-changing weather. No two days are alike. Warm, cold, windy, dry, snow, melting, more snow. More rain. No sun for weeks at a time. Sometimes, by mid afternoon, it is as dark as night.
It’s a good time for oddballs in this oddest of worlds.
I should be grateful that all this precipitation is rain rather than snow. Someone calculated that if this were snow, it would be more than two feet … and that would make me even sadder than the mud field out front. It really IS ugly, though.
It’s the dog’s yard, so it probably wouldn’t be lovely anyway, but all the rain has melted away any remnant of grass that might have been there. The frequent wind storms have left a far larger collection of branches and twigs there, too. There’s a lot of cleanup to do when finally, it isn’t raining, snowing, or sleeting.
