Friday 55-Snow More!/Da Count-Snow Less!

FRIDAY 55


The thermometer hit 70 degrees.
I threw open the windows.
I rejoiced to hear the spring peepers.
I went without a coat.
The equinox arrived...

And left quickly.

The mercury plummeted.
I cranked the heat back up.
I'm pretty sure the frogs froze to death.
I reached for my scarf and mittens.

It's snowing...
AGAIN!





DA COUNT

I really was overjoyed when Spring began to hit at it's arrival but it was a mere tease 2 weeks ago.  Winter reared its ugly head again.  March came in like a lion and was determined to go roaring out the same way.  As I write this post it's snowing with predictions of 5-10 inches.  I am less than thrilled.  Yes, this all sounds more like a lament than a count.  I'm going to count that it's April...in the northern hemisphere.  That has to mean something, right?  Spring has to return soon, doesn't it?  It's April...it's going to be warm soon...

5-10 inches? Yowtch!

We've been cold - didn't get above 40 again till yesterday. But no snow, thankfully. I've actually been out on my bike a few times; definitely wool socks, long-johns and a hoodie. . .

Hey, Lime, I don't know you (Yet!) ...but, but...but could you just say "Snow/More" and move to FLOW-REE-DAH???

Nice 55. Thanks!

Rumor has it that I should leave the studded tires on for another week. Sigh. Didn't the groundhog refrain from seeing his shadow or something?

Wait - you had 70 degrees? So jealous...

G-Man said...

WTF??
Do you live in Buffalo?
Sorry Trini, But it was great story inspiration.
Loved your 55.
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

The weather is just crazy these days and you nailed it.

KB said...

It's all over the place here too at the mo. How is a girl supposed to know what to wear?

Beach Bum said...

Winter one day, spring the next and back to winter after that?

Got to love that climate change craziness. I'm almost willing to bet summer will be a bad one.

Steve Isaak said...

Been in that situation. Fun work!

Suldog said...

Frickin' snow last night here. I refuse to shovel any more snow. It can sit there until it melts. Screw it.

lecram said...

Sorry it is snowing there. Though strangely we have related counts... two sides of a coin kinda related.

Cheers!

That's March for you...

In like a lion...

Out like a lamb...

Then, just when you've let your guard down... WHAM!

The lion pounces on the lamb!

It is HOT, HOT, HOT here!

We've had sun maybe three days in a row and it's great though I know we'll likely get rain and hail again in April.

Mama Zen said...

If it snows again, here, I can't be held responsible for my actions!

Alice Audrey said...

I swear Winter is trying to edge out Summer this year! Here too, though thankfully the snow isn't sticking around once it hits.

Craig said...

These April Fool's Day jokes are getting out of hand. . .

Jocelyn said...

There will be trillium. There will be daffodils. There will be the whole-body mood change that comes with fresher air and hints of warmth.

It's coming. It is.

S said...

aw man, hope the sun comes back for you soon!

Kat said...

Oh no!!!! I'm so sorry. We were supposed to get snow here today too, but so far there is nothing. However, the highest our temps have gotten all March was about 42 degrees. Boo.
Where the hell is spring???

Dianne said...

hard to plan spring outings without spring!
I'm lamenting the same on my blog HERE

Cricket said...

Heh, heh. Well, at least you found some petic inspiration in it.

As Sul said, snow in our neck of the woods too. No 5-10 in, maybe 2 for me and, as with Suldog, I let it alone.

It's gone now.

Warm is, I believe, a state of mind. My wife is of the camp that believes 50 degrees is cold in spring but warm in winter. I think it's just 50 degrees, whether or not it is seasonable. She has complained that I have all the windows open when it is 68 degrees... warmer by 6-10 degrees than we ever set our thermostat.

Actually, we set it to 65 for certain company, but still...

Cricket said...

p.s. "petic" = poetic. Woops.

secret agent woman said...

Ooh, that's sucky. I opened the windows today and just closed them to turn on the heat. But no snow, so I'm grateful.

Dave said...

If you follow our climate Michelle, our spring only seemed to last a couple of weeks last season, then after a bit more bad weather we went into summer, and so far we have had four months of it. It has been great but hot! Its now autumn- Dave

I'm sick and tired of the damn rain.

Logophile said...

I just drove through ice and slush to arrive at my sister's house in eastern WA.
I'm very glad it is not at my house!

Here's hoping it leaves your house soon and you get SUN SUN SUN!

I missed the 4 inches we got here, only to get snowed on at the Top of the Rock last Friday in NYC.
