A surprising spring snow

Graphic from Baptist Bible Hour
We're lifelong New Englanders here -- and so nothing the weather does should surprise us.  There's a saying in New England: "If you don't like the weather, wait a minute."  And that is very true.  Saturday was sunny and beautiful.  Sunday was pouring rain but still fairly warm.  Monday -- mostly sunny and nice.  Tuesday -- rainy but not cold.  And then there was Tuesday night.  It was 25º when we got up this morning, with a coating of snow on everything.

It's remained chilly, too.  Now, around 11:30 in the  morning, it is still only 28º!  However, the sun has come out and much of the snow has melted.  And I did read on the National Weather Service site that the midwest and western Great Lakes region are expecting a major snowstorm.  So we can be thankful we're here and not out there!  Here in our locality, the hazardous weather outlooks involve rivers flooding due to snow melt and yesterday's rain.  And tonight may get as cold as 18º!


  1. Hope you have a warm and blessed Easter Mrs T.
