    I am in Eastern NY and we had a dusting of snow this morning. Winter just doesn't want to leave!!

    Yes ... same thing here in Western Ontario. Yesterday when I was on the roads, it was near whiteouts, while blowing across the roads. Overnight, we had enough cover that the grass, lane and sidewalk are covered yet again! My daffodils had started to poke thru the lawn, and now are saying, I think I should go back from whence I came!!

    I smiled at your picture ... yes, perfect for the upside down weather we are having!!!

    Upstate NY has about 1-1.5" of snow! Just since 5am this morning! Be a duck! Let it roll off your back.
    Go forth and sew!

    In contrast to your weather, we are expecting temps in the mid/hi 70s and maybe some rain which will be gratefully received -- summer will soon be upon us with hot, dry weather

    I'm 40 miles south of Chicago and it's sunny here, expected to be near 40 today. Yesterday's high of 40 was the coldest April 1 here in 20 years.

    In my part of Virginia it's sunny (yes!) and about 45 degrees at 10:30am.
    But yesterday, the wind!!! Heavens, I truly thought it would be the time the additions to the cottage would fall right off.

    It looks overcast here in Central Oregon. But in 5 minutes it could be sunny or a blizzard could start. We never know, this is why we keep a survival pack in the trucks.

    ha, ha. is that upside down or a reflection? it's slightly raining here and now trying hard to snow. but it's about 47 degrees outside so the snow doesn't have a chance.

    Have had nice spring like weather, which makes me afraid we are in for a LONG HOT SUMMER.
