April Snowstorm

For my readers who do not dwell in my corner of the world, on Friday it snowed over six inches here. A late season snowstorm is different from an early season snowstorm. The bad news is that it's still winter, but the good news is that it's gone much sooner.

The storm had been expected for a number of days, so it gave us all time to plan for it.  It snowed throughout the night and into the morning, but by noon, as you can see, the sun was shining and everything was melting.

It was a heavy, wet snow, perfect for snowmen and snowballs.  Difficult to shovel, but once the snow was off your sidewalk, everything dried nicely. No snow emergencies were called by any of the nearby localities, because no plowing was needed.

But everyone is pretty ready for winter to be over.  The storm made us all rather grumpy. Even my honey, who has ridden his bicycle to work on -35° days, stayed home for the morning. Many stayed home for the morning.

We know spring is coming though. We're planning our first barbecue for tonight. And rumor has it that it could get up to the mid-sixties on Wednesday!
