Here We Go Again
The weather changed. The days were warmer. The leaves are coming out on the trees. No coats needed.
Then it turned cold. Here we go again.
Last night when I went to bed it began to rain. I like rain. It is relaxing and I looked forward to a good night's sleep.
Then it began to hail. At first it was a pitter-patter of tiny hailstones. Soon the sound of small boulders was pummeling the roof. The over-large hail lasted for several minutes. I was tired and did not even get out of bed to see the actual size.
This morning I saw snow on my back porch. A closer look revealed that it was melting hail.
The combination of rain and hail added to the already swollen river. The floods were receding from the fields. They have more standing water today.
The Army Corps of Engineers is predicting a lot more flooding this year. What good news.
We have a few more days of precipitation this week but the temperatures are supposed to get warmer. At least the blizzard went above us so we are not snowed in.
It is a battle between winter and spring. I wonder who will win.
