For Crying Out Loud.....!!!!!
This is what greeted us on April 19th and again on April 20th. WE live in the Pacific Northwest, not the North Pole. What is happening?
Snow this late is unheard of...that is, until now.
It was fortunately very dry and light. Snow is always tough on the greenhouses and I am sad that my blossoming cherry may not produce this summer. We'll see.
I am very grateful that we did not start our vegetable garden!
Besides the snow, we were greeted with hail the size of pregnant peas, rain and flannel gray skies.
The weather report promised "episodes" of sun today. I have yet to enjoy that, but at least it is...
I love the poetic turn, "episodes of sun". I am always fascinated by the opposing statements of "partly sunny" and "partly cloudy". Is that akin to the "glass half full" and the "glass half empty"? I am eagerly awaiting the sun episodes and hope that these will soon turn into "Extended Visits", "Homeric Epics" and a "Long Running, Sold Out Solar Production of Mammoth Proportions".
