Um isn’t it almost April? What in the world is up with this weather? I’m beyond ready for spring and it just seems to not want to come. It should be warm, with flowers blooming and it’s cold and snowy. Ugh!
Seriously, more snow? And of course the forecasts are all over the place. This one calls for minimal snow while some are calling for up to 8 inches. And of course this would be forecasted right at the same time that my boss is out of town and I have to get the paper out. Anyone have any sled dogs because I don’t think a snow day is in my future. Isn’t it supposed to be spring anyway? Here’s hoping for only a little snow fall, and wishing and praying.
I could have sworn spring was coming, but then I wake up to this. What in the world? Wasn’t one March snow enough? Now we have two. I’m ready for warm weather. No more snow please, especially since I’m a dingdong who cleans off the windshield and windows, but never the top of the car. Lesson learned today. I was at a light when I noticed snow creeping down the windshield. No problem. I just used the wipers to break it up and get rid of it. Then, once I make the turn snow slides down and blocks my entire windshield! Because it was so heavy, the wipers wouldn’t move. I had to try to pull to the side of the road blind and clear it off enough to drive to a side road where I could pull in and clear it all off. That could have been a real disaster since it happened on a fairly busy road. Luckily, someone was looking out for me and I only got cussed by a Swanson man behind me. Lesson learned.
Okay so this is a day late due to yesterday’s snowstorm which knocked the power out for a few hours and then knocked the cable (and internet) out for about 24 hours. We ended up getting around 6 inches of snow, maybe a little more since I measured it for the last time in the afternoon and it snowed a little bit after that. So yesterday was a snow day, but we were able to get out today. That’s my kind of snowstorm.
For about an hour or two this morning there was a white Christmas. I was at work and the snow was coming down, the first of the season. It was my kind of snow too. It looked pretty, but it didn’t stick and cause any problems.
Hurricane Sandy left behind snow on the mountains, which can be seen from down below in the valley. It’s actually a pretty awesome sight and one that is in no way well represented by this photo. It was gloomy this afternoon when I took this, and I think it would have been better had it been bright and sunny. It’s really one of those things everyone needs to see for themselves. In a word, it’s majestic. If you can, take the chance to see something similar in person. You won’t regret it.
The forecast called for flurries this morning, switching over to rain with no accumulation. Does this look like flurries? After at least five inches, it kept snowing until early afternoon. It eventually warmed up and the snow starting melting, but it never rained. I think someone got their forecast a little mixed up. And in true crazy weather fashion its supposed to be 70 degrees later this week. It’s okay though because I had a nice snow day. I worked from home after attempting to go to work and turning around because the roads were terrible this morning. I actually still got alot done, plus I cleaned the house and spent time with Buddy.
