Yesterday, April 5, was a gorgeous spring day. The temperature was 70+ so I spent the day cleaning the deck. Pine cone pieces, pine needles, cedar droppings and lots of other stuff gets caught between the deck boards. I even arranged the deck furniture that had been stacked for the winter. Dave spent the afternoon burning brush piles. Late afternoon I read the weather forecasting snow today. Really?? This must be a mistake. No, they were correct. The snow began today around 9:45 this morning. It’s 11:30 as I type and we have surpassed the estimated 1/2 inch, there’s 2+ inches already and we haven’t hit the time period when the snow is suppose to fall the heaviest. After reading the weather forecast yesterday, I prepared for possible power outages. I’m hoping everything that could possible fall or break from snow loads happened 2 weeks ago in the previous destructive storm.
Beautiful spring day on the cleaned deck.
Crocus blooming, tulips heads are green. I hope they don’t break under the new snow load.
David adding brush to burn pile. It was such a pretty day.
A large alligator lizard from one of the brush piles.
I decided to pick the only hyacinth and added a few wildflowers. There were 2 groups of shooting stars blooming on the side of the house. Since the snow was coming, I was going to bring Spring indoors.
