Snowman my son and I made
Winter's Last Gasp? I certainly hope so! Anyone that has watched the news has probably heard about the winter storm that started in the southeast and headed up the eastern seaboard.
We had rain starting Friday around noon, all day and night Saturday, all day Sunday and then it changed over to a mix and finally to snowfall. We wound up with around 4.5 inches. The largest snowfall we have had in 5 years! I know I had an earlier post where I was talking about the 3 inch snowfall and how that was the largest in several years up to that point. Well now we have this snowfall and it was beautiful waking up to a winter wonderland. We went out and had fun in it but it is super cold here and I have been longing for spring for several weeks.
We actually had some buttercups blooming but today they are covered with snow and I don't know how they will look once it melts. That will probably be around Wednesday. By Friday the temperatures will be around 70 degrees so I sincerely hope this is winter's last gasp.
I went out with my son and we built a small snowman and had a snowball fight. Later, we made snow cream which was nice and I told my son to enjoy it because hopefully that is the last snow cream this year.
Oh well, you know what they say about March, "in like a lion, out like a lamb." Let's hope they are right!
