What happens when you don’t listen to the weather forecast for days? Surprises that’s what and not the kind that make me smile. The first words out of my mouth as I was pushing back the curtains in my bedroom were, “Oh, no!!!!!!!” Who would’ve thought? The crocuses were blooming so nicely. It’s been gradually warming up. Spring arrived two days ago. The street cleaner came by on Saturday to clean the gravel off the sides of the road. Who would’ve thought? All these positive springlike things were taking place. Snow was not on my radar except maybe to see it in December, which is 9 months from now. But, Mother Nature likes to surprise us, doesn’t she?
Once again, here is the view out my studio window.
The poor robin probably wishes that she had stayed south for awhile longer.
I think it is supposed to snow all morning long and it will stay cold so will not melt right away. Someone please give me some springlike news. I feel like I just fell down the rabbit hole.
I can’t give you any springlike news that will make it any better, but I can moan and sigh and maybe even cry with you. What a terribly horrible thing to wake up to! Surely this has to be the very last storm of the year….but we said that last time right? We are getting cooler weather this week, but I don’t think any snow.
My advice is to just stay inside and knit like there’s no tomorrow… get lots of pretties made and don’t look out the window too much. What you don’t see won’t hurt you… If you look, you might cry! I would say “Happy Spring,” but that would be cruel too! So just Happy Happy!
Hi Jeanne. So it’s not springy by you either. I’m glad that you at least didn’t get snow. That is good news. Hopefully this IS the last of the snow for us. (Fingers crossed) Thank you for the Happy Happy wishes. Got through today and looking forward to an improvement tomorrow…hopefully.
