Taste of Spring

It's ironic that I am writing a post about the warm days of Spring during a blizzard. Outside my window, snow is swirling around in the 30 mph wind, the 50mph gusts evoking creaky groans from the northwest corner of the house.

It's our annual hunker-down, cancel school, stay off the roads Snow Day.

Just four days ago, we were basking in shorts and tank tops, reveling in the ample sunshine and 70 degF temperatures.

Throngs of people took advantage of the good weather to clean the winter's salt scum off their cars (we washed ours in the driveway) and took to the outside. The local parks teemed with families, couples, dogs and children. And the occasional bird.


The walking / running paths wind through the prairie, punctuated by sculptures. The art adds a unique touch to the park.

Even though there isn't any green showing up, the warm weather is a harbinger of days to come.


Just not a harbinger of today's blizzard.

We aren't far apart, but no snow here. You would think it's spring here...but the ground is frozen. Blue skies here...what a treat!

So, your weather has been changeable, too. We've been having spring-like temps here at altitude. Not too good for our ski areas!

It really has been an unusual winter, hasn't it???
We surely have not had any 70 degree days, but overall the winter has been very mild.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend, Shirley!

Beautiful shots! We have just begun the season of Autumn here.
