Spring and winter in a week

me sketch
Last week we had the most classic blizzard ever. Usually we just get ground blizzards here (not much new snow, but a lot of wind stirring around whatever's loose). This time, we got a foot of new snow at the same time we had high winds. We were out of school for two days. AGAIN.

Today, though, it was 70 degrees! So much snow melted that you can see the old Christmas trees that were frozen to the curb back at the beginning of the year. It was also warm enough that car thieves didn't have to worry about their footprints giving them away. Someone stole a van from a grocery store parking lot, only whoops! There was a five year old in it. (NEVER LEAVE YOUR KIDS ALONE IN THE CAR!!!) As a result, the city police put three schools on lockdown while they chased him. They found the van and the kid, but not the guy.

Of course, tomorrow won't be that nice, but we enjoy it when we get it.

I can't imagine living there. It sounds wild!

It's been winter so long that I honestly can't remember what spring is like. The parts of the ground where the snow has melted look STRANGE. The sunrise isn't even the right color without snow to reflect off of, lol. Unfortunately, the bit of summer we saw when we came was very hot and humid, so there might be a point when we long for those -30 temperatures!

We're well and truly into spring around here. Although we got snow into May last year, this year, it's looking like only the mountains will have that. It's supposed to rain on Sunday, but till then, we have sunny (windy, of course) balmy weather. :)

Scary about the kid -- I'm relieved he's okay!

Well, the snow has melted a little bit away from the house. I keep checking the cold dirt to see if any of the bulbs we planted are coming up. Not yet--but I have hope! :)
