It's March 30th. Spring officially started last week. The baseball Cardinals have their opening day tomorrow. And it's snowing. Ridiculous!
I understand there was some nice weather last week, but when I arrived home from my Spring Break trip on Thursday it was chilly. Friday morning there was a dusting of snow (which melted by noon). Saturday afternoon the white stuff started again, and by bedtime there was about five inches on the ground . It was substantially gone by Sunday afternoon. We got a break on Monday, but when I was out last night my car was pelted by a cold mix of rain and snow. This morning when I woke up the grass was covered with a light layer of snow, and there was enough on the deck that I didn't want to go outside to fill the bird feeder.
To put things in perspective, the average high at this time of year is 60°
According to the 10-day forecast today should be the last of the nasty stuff. (I can only hope.) There's a chance of rain for the next few days, but that's to be expected. It's almost April, so I'll look forward to those showers bringing May flowers.
