When I woke up in the middle of the night last night like I usually do, I glanced out the window and saw that we had gotten a bit of snow. Yesterday friends from the mid-west USA had posted photos on Facebook with bitter complaints about the weather because they had snow. Didn’t the Powers That Be know that it was April 15 already??
Here in Central Massachusetts, it was a nasty day yesterday but it was warmish so it rained all day and the wind was blowing like a son of a gun. I thought that that was going to be the worst of it. I wasn’t expecting snow. But there it was staring me in the face at 3:30 a.m. I didn’t lose sleep over it. These late snow storms are ephemeral and really more like April showers than snow. They don’t even make the flowers that are trying like heck to come up complain much. But, here is what it looked like when Olive and I went for our walk this morning:
Looking out the window a little later, I saw that most of the snow was gone. I went out and took a few snaps of the lonely flowers that are growing in our yard. They looked a little down-hearted, but I think they will survive. I suppose that that is the good news.
The bad news is that I felt like I had to put on socks today. Oh, snap!
