Just when you thought it was safe to go back outside, the jaws of winter have come back! We all thought we were safe in the calm peaceful currents of spring, and then winter resurfaced to take us back down into the biting cold of it's icy depths. Can anything stop this horrifying beast?
We've had nice pleasant weather for weeks now, but today we just had a winter snowstorm to match any we've had all year. It started out like any other spring day. It was a little colder than others, because the day was one of those rainy spring days that we have once or twice a week.
Then, as the afternoon began to get late, the temperature began to drop a further, and the rain turned into snow! At first it was only a little spring snow. That was no big deal. Then it turned into a good sized snowstorm, which threw us right back into winter's icy grip.
I gotta say, that was fun to write! It was a bit of an exaggeration, but it was technically correct, and we did just have a pretty good sized snowstorm. The reality is that it has been much too warm for the snow to stick around. By tomorrow or the next day, we won't have any evidence that it was here.
Little setbacks like this are bound to happen in the first days spring. This was the first one, and it may not be the last. The good thing is that as the days go by, this will happen less and less. Even now, snowstorms like this one have been reduced to a fun little novelty here. Tomorrow they will be a long forgotten thing of the past.
Winter is dead. Long live the spring!
