It was 75 degrees on Tuesday and now it's %&@$ing snowing!!!!

I'm dreaming of a white Easter...

Everybody now!

...with forecasts for a record low.
Where kids wear mittens
and ears frostbitten
And Easter dresses wet with snow.

I'm dreaming of a white Easter
with every Easter egg I dye
May your chocolate all taste just right
And next year may the weather be right.


With apologies to Irving Berlin,

See now, I actually grew up with snow in April. :) Gotta love Colorado weather!

Or course...you aren't in Colorado. Which is a bit of a challenge. ;)

well..i thought winter season was skipped this year since there were no snow for weeks and months. It was more like autumn
but finally it's snowing late march! which was unexpected. Only for 2 or 3 days though.

Now is april bright sunny day here looks like early summer instead of early spring

unpredictable weather.

I need bunny costume.

I put the hummingbird feeders out when it was 70 degrees, because hummer.net reported the hummingbird migration near Michigan. Now they are frozen solid.

It's starting to stick now, and coming down hard enough that visibility is an issue.

Oh well, at least it's helping to fill the pool. They just took the cover off on Tuesday.

Two days ago the family was all outside playing in shorts with sunscreen on. Right now I am getting the kids all dressed up in their snowsuits so they can go and play in the couple of inches that has fallen in the past 4 hours or so. I love it!

It's tricky....we don't actually get 2 weeks in a row. We might get 2 days of summer in late June, that gets us all excited. Then we'll get a day in the middle of July. Probably no more until the last week in July and the first week in August, we might actually get 3 or 4 days of summer in a row. Usually we have to wait until mid September to get the last day. Fun, eh?

I live in Akron, Ohio. South of Cleveland. Got my ass burned working on a roof on Tuesday. And two days later got my thermals on. With a inch of snow on the ground. Why does Ohio have so many people living here. LOL.

Not to hijack this thread too far off, but when the weather stablizies we might consider doing some sort of Ohio DPC GTG. There seem to be enoug of us within an hour or two. Lets just get through this snow first (trying to keep on subject) ;)

We also had warm weather a few days back. Now it is freezing again. Makes ya want to go kick the crap out of the local weather guy don't it?

Here in Binghamton, NY, we only got a dusting, but went from 68 and sunny on Tuesday to rain on Wed to this today, and cold! But it could be worse - I talked to my parents in VT, and they got 5 inches of snow.

Blah.

Yes this is really annoying!! I'm getting married on Saturday and 'original' plan was an outside ceremony near a waterfall a 1/2 mile from my house.... But with 1-2' snow planned Friday and Sat....on to back-up plan..

AARRGGHH!
