Another freaking blizzard
The kind of day that, combined with the calendar, makes one think towards Spring and all that entails.
Even the birds were in full song. Tra la!
Then, around 4:00 pm, it got darker. The winds picked up. And up. And UP!
Before you know it they were blasting at 30-40mph. And it started to snow - sideways.
Temp tumbled from 36 to 23 within 10 minutes! (It eventually bottoming out near 10F last night.)
Meanwhile the snow kept coming. It plastered the sides of the house and trees.
More and more snow - whiteouts for 30-45 minutes. My one leaky window whined and whistled from the persistent wind.
Finally, around 7:00 pm, things seemed to have settled down with about 1.5" of snow.
There, I thought. It got it out of its system.
But NO. It snowed again in the night and I found 3+ inches on the ground this morning (almost 6+ over at my Mom's - just 4 miles away).
Oh good grief!
Have I ever mentioned how tired of winter I am. Have I? HAVE I?
