Here We Go Again
We had some nice warm days and all the snow was gone.
My Son went out and cut down some small trees that should have been eliminated last year. Our neighbor was busy cleaning his yard while looking for odd bits of wood for his wood stove. He has plenty but any extra is welcome. Another neighbor mowed hi lawn for the first time this year.
There was minor flooding but the river was supposed to recede By yesterday; no they changed it to today; wait maybe two more days would be needed.
I awoke this morning and looked out the window. Everything was white.
We had probably about 5 inches of snow today. So much for spring.
There were some fairly large flakes coming down for a while along with normal snow. As usual it is pretty to watch as it floats down and lands.
Once the snow stopped the wind began to blow harder. Big clumps of wet snow blew from the trees. Some landed on the roof. Some fell to the ground leaving small craters in the snow.
At least for now there is no snow and no strong wind. Occasionally when I look out the wind a quick breeze will send a little snow racing across a yard. No swirls just straight across.
According to the weatherman it will be cold for a few days with another day of snow and rain mix in about three days.
It is supposed to warm up then... according to the weatherman. I am beginning not to trust him.
