    Unhappy Spring - it's snowing here AGAIN !!!

    OMG, I am so disappointed. It's April 14th & it's snowing here today. It started during the night & according to the weather channel, it's going to snow all day into this evening. Gimme a break. What do we have to do to get rid of winter ???? It was just starting to melt nicely & now this.............

    ....but you know Spring weather is on the way. I just hope we don't get enough frost to damage the fruit tree blossoms.

    We are to have snow showers tonight, no accumulation. I sure hope they are right. It was very warm in the house this weekend. Spring flowers are blooming and trees are leafing out. Warm weather should be here for good in May or June.

    It was a beautiful day here yesterday, today is not quite as nice but I had coffee outside on the patio this morning! Tomorrow- snow and freezing rain!!! We can only hope for spring. Sure enough though, come July, we will be complaining of the heat and humidity.

    Then it froze the wet roads.

    Someone hit a power pole during the night which took out the
    power for the hole area where I live.

    Hubs said we didn't get power back for a couple hours while the
    4 truck crew worked on repairing it.

    The roads where so icy that hubs couldn't drive the Jeep to work.

    Snow here this AM too. It's up to the mid-30's now. I feel sorry for the birds. They were making nests and singing over the weekend because it was so nice.

    Freeze here in north central Texas tonight. So much for my pomegranate bush and flowering shrubs that are in bloom this year. They are too big to cover and it's is very windy until after midnight when it is supposed to be calm and freeze.

    The weekend was perfect. The cherry blossoms were perfect. Monday was perfect. This morning it is raining and wet snow is predicted for late tonight with a temperature drop of about 40 degrees. Please, Mr. Winter, GO AWAY!

    We ended up with heavy snow which with the strong winds didn't help matters. I think we ended up with almost a foot of additional snow (which we didn't need). My DH & I are avid golfers but we can't even see the course let alone go out & play a game. Our golf season is going to be a very short one this year. It's still snowing (lightly) here today but this time the worst of it has moved to the southern part of Ontario. We can only hope that later this week things will warm up & start melting again. Happy Easter everyone.

    Snow on the ground here in Ohio today. And it's still snowing this morning, looks absolutely frigid out there. 75 Sunday, 78 yesterday and now this. I had my windows open on Sunday and the fresh air was wonderful. Back in sweats and sweatshirt drinking hot tea again. This too shall pass!

    Snowing here in western N.Y. right now. Yesterday I wore flip flops, today back to socks and slippers. Hope Spring comes soon. I didn't mind winter but this is crazy.

    Covering up blueberries and lettuces tonight. Apple trees will likely be killed tonight. Didn't get a single blueberry last year; hope for better this year.

    I can feel for you. Saturday the temps were into the 70's, bulbs are popping up all over so I decided to start working out in the yard, planting onions, transplanting rhubarb, etc. Then it started lightening later into the day, raining on Sunday morning with low temps to finally turning into snow by nightfall. Monday morning we had between 1 - 2" of snow on the ground. Even our lilac trees had leaves on them. Looking today outside, what's already sprouted doesn't seem to be damaged much but then it could take a couple of days to show signs of damage. We need the moisture as we're on water restriction for another year but sure wish it was more rain instead of snow. Though when I got home Sunday afternoon my basement was flooded again. Have no clue where its coming from either but decided to move the one bookcase full of fabric into the other room as its made of that pressed board stuff. And yes, it disentergrated as I moved it on the bottom edge. DRAT!!!!! The weather sure is strange this year all over.

    After a week of temperatures in the 70's and low 80's, we have had another cold front come through. At least we don't have the snow and ice that you all to the north have but I absolutely refuse to turn on the heat again.

    Time to go find my 2 cat furbabies and cuddle!
