Don’t Hold Your Breath Yet! Spring is Here Somewhere!

I mentioned in a previous post that hold on a minute and the weather in New England will change again from warm to cold and back again. Well, it happened on 4/16/21! We had snow – about two inches! It was heavy and very wet!

I have been so busy with a WIP that I haven’t had much time to write as many posts as I normally do. For that, I apologize. I hope to complete my WIP soon and share more about it. In the meantime I will be doing short posts like this one.

Here are some photos I snapped as we were out and about in this miserable weather.

Who would have thought that the second week of April we would have snow? The weather has been colder too – 40’s. The day after the storm the weather creeped up into the 50’s and the snow disappeared! That is the only good thing about spring snow – it melts quickly.

It’s amazing how when it is winter time the temps are as cold as below zero. When the temps go up to the 30’s we think it is warm! But in the spring when the temps go up to the 70’s and drop down to the 40’s or 50’s it feels cold! I guess it is all relative. It’s what our bodies get used to.

It was a good day to stay in and work on my book or read. I did a little of both. Well, I have plenty more to do on my WIP. Back to the drawing board.

I hope wherever you live that you are staying warm and dry. Take care. Stay safe and well.

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!

  1. My husband and I lived in MA until three years ago, and remember several April and even early May snowstorms.

  2. My wife and I lived in Denver years ago and always had those late April snows….just when you are so ready for spring weather! I have to say, your pictures are beautiful!!

    It was beautiful, and thankfully short lived.
