Re: Anyone Else Having Winter Weather?

Eliot does mention it, in the very first lines:

 

"April is the cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.
Winter kept us warm, covering
Earth in forgetful snow, feeding
A little life with dried tubers.
Summer surprised us, coming over the Starnbergersee
With a shower of rain; we stopped in the colonnade,
And went on in sunlight, into the Hofgarten,
And drank coffee, and talked for an hour."
 
The first lines of an endless poem!

Freezing here in CT.  Snow predicted for tomorrow.

Re: Anyone Else Having Winter Weather?

We had an unusually warm winter with nary a flake of snow.  The NM mountain's snow pack was 95% below normal, so now we're in severe drought status.  Its 70° here today but next week we will hit 80° which is way too early for such warmth.  I dread summer.  Trees are budding and allergies are running rampant.

Re: Anyone Else Having Winter Weather?

Just looked at the forecast 

 

Tonight - snow after 2 AM - little accumulation

Friday - snow before 8 AM - little accumulation

Saturday - snow before 1 PM - little accumulation

Saturday night - snow after midnight - 1-3 inch accumulation
Monday snow before 9 AM

My poor daffodils. I covered some of them the other night. And was shocked how heavy the snow was when I lifted the cover. I was lucky the daffodils weren't damaged from the weight of the snow. The daffodils I did not cover are lying on the ground.

Now we have snow flurries.  At least it isn't sticking, but sheesh.

Re: Anyone Else Having Winter Weather?

Yep, of course, but I live in WI so we can experience winter well into April (as we are currently). Many here remember a blizzard that came through here on May10th. Its after then we feel its safe to say we’re done getting snow for a few months. Lol

Re: Anyone Else Having Winter Weather?

I got tired of the traffic and crowds at the beach and decided to head back north to southwest MI over the weekend. It's currently 40 degrees with a winter weather advisory overnight calling for up to 3" of snow. Meanwhile, it's 83 degrees and sunny at the beach. I'm kinda kicking myself a little bit.
