Hello Spring


…Not.

 

The backyard this morning

Of course it’s been POURING rain for days, so everything was already dripping wet with huge puddles and street flooding. Now it’s below freezing, so everything is iced over. I’M SO GLAD I DON’T HAVE A LONG COMMUTE TO WORK TODAY!! My neighbor’s daffodils are all laying on the ground. Most of mine are protected underneath my still-leafless maple tree in the front yard, but even the bare branches were enough protection.

  1. I wish we had a spring, here in New Orleans. It’s been roughly summerish since about Valentines Day. The plants here are so confused. And now it’s raining for the last 2 days and street flooding here as well. Glad we at least don’t have to deal with the ice situation. Hope your flowers manage to make it through!

  2. Yeah, this is also WAAAAAYYY too early for summer-y weather. But this is very rare here in my area. The mountains and foothills can get a late snow, that’s not as unusual but I’m inland at nearly sea-level. I’ve lived here for 20 years and I’ve never seen snow here at this time of year. I think the bulbs will make it, they’re pretty hardy. I’m half-surprised we still have power, expecting lots of branches down.

  3. Just think of it as “nuclear winter” here. Starting to warm up and melt a bit now. Actually, the snow was almost a nice change from all the heavy rains lately.

  4. Hey, buddy! Woke up to snow this morning. That’s about right for March here. And April. And maybe May. And even June, if we’re _really_ lucky 😐

  5. Ugh. When I lived in Massachusetts, snow in April ain’t no thang. I remember coming out of church on Easter Sunday with snow coming down. We still had piles of it in the shade from the old barn behind the house in JUNE. My mother would get so fed up seeing it she’d take a shovel and toss it out into the sun so it would melt. But here? Very strange. It’s very temperate here, some years we get no snow at all. We can get frosts right through the end of May, but this is extreme for this area.

    Although, I gotta say, it’s almost better than the driving rain we’ve had the last couple of weeks.

  6. Beautiful pictures. New York is also busting out all over way too soon. It’s scary. Yesterday was 70, today 50 and tomorrow we’re expecting torrents of rain. My shoes and boots are lined up like soldiers waiting to be called to active duty depending on the temperature.

    Mother nature, as Charlie the doorman always unequivocally tells me, needs to get laid.

  7. Hahaha 🙂 Enjoy it while you’ve got it! Things are much improved now, in the 50s today but sunny-ish (high, thin clouds so it’s not real bright, but we’ll take it).

  8. I have weather whiplash from these inconsistent days. But I love to watch kids waiting for the bus or walking to school: They are wearing their shorts! Nothing like the optimism of youth.
