April Showers , Oh No Snow Really ?!


Yup that's what all the rains from yesterday and  over night turned into , that dreaded stuff called snow  YIKES ! Well you can bet I had a few choice words to say about all this lol   !

This is pretty much all we got which was just a dusting  and I am thankful  that's all we got . The winds were howling and it was cold  . The birds didn't  seem to mind all though I think the Robins were a bit tiffed as I can imagine the worms squiggled deep down under ground  lol !

I'm sure the birds hope that's the last of it.

We had light rain early this morning, but it's switched over to snow since before noon.

The snow was settling as we went to bed, but most was gone this morning. Wet snow and rain all morning but nothing that settled. It's windy and temps will drop overnight. Just to the north of us there was lots of snow. The crocus are blooming, and probably shivering.

Snow go away is what I'm thinking too, Elaine, as we have had several days of rain this week which are really helping with getting rid of last weekend's April Fools snowfall.

Hi Elaine, I too am so ready for winter bidding us adieu and warm weather staying. We do need some rain, but snow please stay away. You've got beautiful birds in your yard-you are so lucky.
