We’ve all been complaining about how unusually cold & snowy this spring has been so far. How many of you in the Midwest remember that it snowed this time two years ago? Yep, I was going through my archives and came upon this photo to prove it. Luckily we had a nice warm up today!
This is the first snowstorm in our new home. I was hoping it wouldn’t come until next winter; now I just hope it’s the last one until next winter. The funny thing is that we never owned a snow shovel at our apartment, and since all the hardware and garden stores are prepped for spring, no one has them for sale. We’re now proud owners of a “manure shovel,” which will hopefully work great for snow removal and never manure removal.
I won’t even express my opinion about yesterday’s snow and the eight more inches expected to pound Kansas City tomorrow. At the end of March. During Spring. Ok, maybe there was a little bit of opinion in that statement. But here’s a photo of beautiful spring daffodils … in the snow.
You may have seen my post last week stating that we bought a house. This week, on top of working full time, we’ll be getting the house ready for move-in. Our big move is Saturday, then we’ve only got a couple of days to unpack before our next big adventure. (Any guesses on what that is?) My blog posts will be sporadic over the next couple of weeks, so please bear with me.
Until then, here is another shot from last week’s storm. Can you name the building in the background?
Are you tired of seeing snow photos yet? Well, you may have to put up with a couple more since the ground is still covered with snow. I think it’ll be around for a while.
This delicate little tree bud was covered in snow and ice earlier this week during “Winter Storm Q.”
Yesterday evening I drove home during a winter storm with huge snowflakes. In a matter of minutes, the ground was covered. (Don’t worry Dad, this was taken at a red light.)
