Spring Snow Storm

Here is how Saturday started, looks pretty nice out dosnt it? It actually wasnt to bad, even temp wise. I was almost convinced maybe they would be wrong and it would pass us up.
Couple hours later you could see it in the skies that something was on its way. There are actually very light flakes occuring in this picture, but you probably cant see them.
NOWWW, you can surely see whats happenning out here. I thought it would be nice to take pictures as the day developed. The storm was coming in pretty good by now,wind was howling, temps dropped.
Yep, its arrived! I actually wasnt feeling to bad at this point because I thought,,awwww it will just melt as it hits..it wont accumulate.
Well, I was wrong wasnt I? It surely did accumulate, BUT...not nearly as much as they said we would have. They stated between 4-7 inches of snow. This is almost 24 hours later, and I'd say maybe an inch or two. Its still lightly snowing here Sunday morning but you can see the weather is going to clear, sun should come out and hopefully most of this will melt away. Our Spring Snow storm wasnt as tough as it could have been, I'm glad because at this point in the season none of us feel like shoveling anymore.

I hope everyone had a great weekend, even if your like us in Wisconsin and you had a little snow storm come on thru.

My children in Wyoming are soooooo ready for spring to arrive there. They had two snow days last week and last night another big storm was suppose to start.......I don't miss the snow that much......but I know I will grow to appreciate it's beauty again in Alaska......see that's positive, right?

Isn't Spring so amazing. On Saturday it was 77 degrees and lovely and on Sunday it was 36 and the winds were gusting to 60 mph. I don't even know what to put on each morning.

Have An Amazing Monday!

Wow! I can't believe that you got that much snow this late in the year, is that normal? When we left here Friday morning it was 68 degrees - 3 hours north in Denton it was in the 30's and the wind was incredible. YUCK! When we got back Saturday night it was in the 60's here again. Go figure! Kathy

We got a little snow, not as much as you did though. I wish the wind would stop blowing and it would just warm up a little. Hate sitting around with a jacket on. lol.

Thats amazing - your great photos told the story. Its hard to imagine all that in one day. Spring is so close yet so far it seems.

I feel guilty....we had some bad wind...but we were in the high 70's...I'll bet you are tired of shoveling snow....you will soooo love your spring when it comes for good I'll bet!!!!

Dawn said...

well... at least it wasn't the 7 inches! i certain;y think that next spring you should wait to drag out your outdoor furniture and wait to hang up those lights on your screen house! i hope it has melted by now :)
