Will summer ever come?

March snow

This has been the winter that just won't let go.  Just two days after a lovely springlike day that saw crocuses blooming, we got whomped with another snowstorm.  The forecast as of last night was 3 to 6 inches of snow for the region, and 1-3 inches of snow in the city.  Hoo-boy were they wrong!  I measured 8 inches of snow on my back deck this morning.  The above photo shows the view from the deck this morning.  Meanwhile here is the deck itself:

After a winter like this one, it's hard to remember that summer will eventually come, and the weather will be warm again!  In fact before you know it, we'll all be complaining about the heat and humidity.  In just a few months this will be the view from my back deck (perhaps minus a few of the palms!):

And this will be the deck:

In the meantime, all I can do is dream, and keep reminding myself that spring is right around the corner!

Lazy morning

  2. I'm so sorry! If I were having to endure your winter I'd be curled up in a ball under the covers crying.

    1. I was hoping this would be winter's last gasp, but now we're supposed to get another cold wave and possibly even more snow next week, and just as I'm coming home from visiting my family in Buffalo!

    1. Thanks, the only good news is that whatever more cold weather we may get, it won't last and spring is right around the corner. At least I sure hope so! After this winter, almost nothing would surprise me.
