Spring Spits Snow

Ever since it became spring the weather has been cloudy gloomy and gray.  Snow is spit into the air, it melts on the walk but sticks on the snow covered areas. 

At least the bad looking snow is covered up…but so is the ice.  Now there are hidden dangers out there.

12 inches at the snowstick

There is still 12 inches of snow at the snowstick.

Besides looking out the window and remarking “look at it snow…AGAIN” I worked on some carvings for the snowstick contest.  Far Guy is working on a gift for a friend.  We clean house and cook…it is almost a race to see who will say “What do you want for supper tonight?”  Far Guy likes salmon, I like steak so that is what we had last night.

The Red Polls were gone but when it began to snow they came back again…or maybe it is a different group of the hungry little buggers.

It sounds like it will do more than spit snow for the next few days…Spring needs to send a memo to Winter telling him that his time is up!

  1. I definitely agree with you that Spring needs to send Winter a memo that Spring has arrived and Winter needs to take a hike. Enough with the snow and crappy weather. At least you have some carving projects to keep you busy. Please be careful and don't fall on any hidden ice.

  2. Ohio had snowfall on the first day of spring this year. The wildflowers don't give up but they are slow to show themselves.

  3. Minnesota Marches are soooo long aren't they. I'm glad my azaleas brought you some color and hope for what is sure to come. Even to Minnesota! We got down to 35 last night and are just grateful for no frost on the azaleas.

  4. We are dealing with rain again, but who's surprised? No snow here, but plenty in the mountains. We may not get to hike up there until June! :-)

  8. Right on the edge of freezing here so we have snow, rain, snow, rain...which means lots of ice to contend with. Be careful out there! Supposed to keep this up for like a week or more.

  10. Winter is sure hanging on almost everywhere this year. The last couple of years we had a mild winter here so maybe this is payback! I sure did miss it by a mile on the snow stick contest this year! I hope you had some guesses in April!

  12. It got cold again here, with rain, and lots of snow in the mountains. That probably means more winter for you as systems work their way across the country.

  13. We're all so sick of winter already. Here the rain came down relentlessly all day. How I long for warm sunshine.

  14. The redpolls are still here. I think they are expecting a small snow storm Friday night. At least they don't complain. I'll wait it out. Winter will be gone when it is good and ready.

  15. Salmon and steak...sounds like our house, too, except that I opt for the salmon :)

  16. That is a lot of snow and ice. The red polls remind me of a finch but they definitely have their own coloring. When in doubt for supper, I drive the whole mile over to the grocery store and pick up steak. We had steak last night and all three of us enjoyed.

  17. Personally, I don't mind that Winter is hanging on a little longer this year. But then, we've probably only had maybe a foot and a half of snow all Winter... Even if there have been several snowfalls (living on the South-East coast of England, it usually takes at least a couple of snowfalls to get even a foot of snow).
