POST TOPICS

      Sometimes I have to work very hard to come up with post topics. Good topics? that's another thing.

      However, the post topic gods have been very good to me for the lat few days.

      It snowed again! That's right. Snow Sunday morning and now more snow on Tues morning. that's very lucky for post topics.

     So this morning at 7 AM it started to snow and snowed for about 2 hours and when finished we had 5 cm (2 in ) of snow.

     By 3:00 PM the snow was gone. we had a high of 5 C (40 F).

     It's quite common to get snow in April and not unknown to get snow in May.

  1. Well, it looks like the Universe is lining up to give you lots of options for posts, Red. Snow and then warmth? Sounds like spring to me! :-)

  2. Brrr. Well, as long as you are used to it, I guess It's OK. I would have a hard time waiting that long for spring.

    1. I don't like rain in the spring. I want to get the crop in and then let it rain. Write what I feel? that could be scary.

  4. No kidding? I can't recall it snowing in May (in Chicago), but yes we did get the occasional snowfall in April. I understand it's quite lovely in Chicago right now though. Yikes! It's cold up north!

    1. Yes, I get reminded all the time about how nice things are. My daughter lives in Lagrange and works about 40 mi north. she says there's often a big difference in weather.

    so nature is giving you topics for sharing with us the climate of your very cold area ,being near to equator makes me exciting to read about such snowy lands

    1. We live in the temperate zone so have four very different seasons. I also spent 5 years in the Arctic. I loved it.

  7. We're expecting rain. I suppose it's all to fill the water table!

    1. As long as the water table doesn't get too high and flooding occurs.

  9. Nice photos. But as for me, I'm glad I've put my boots away and can now walk to town and see daffodils along the way.

  11. Terrific shots! I still think we could see some more here before we're done, but at the moment, it's mostly just piles that are slowly melting.

  12. Snow again!! I can remember getting snow one April several years ago, but snow in April is rare for us. Here in North Carolina we have been having some 80 degree temps.

    1. Snow in the Carolinas in April would be very odd.

  13. Bummer! Even with climate change?

    1. Climate change is to give us extremes...too hot, too cold, too wet, too dry.

  14. This sounds a lot like where we live, Red :) We usually get one storm near the end of April. Then we can generally relax.

    1. Sometimes the April storms are very severe.

  15. Your winter doesn't want to say goodbye and ours is not showing any signs of appearing. It is slightly cooler in the evenings but that's all. I love this time of year!

  16. May I suggest that if there is another significant snowfall - you could step outside and make a snow-woman in the shape of The Micro Manager. This creation could be the basis of another great blogpost.

  17. Living in Canada, you get used to this. I once saw snow in August on a day where it got unbelievably cold for that time of year. It melted as it landed but it was still surprising to see!

  18. My goodness, on our travels I'm told it is going to be 90 degrees tomorrow. I think I would rather have your snow, foolish woman that I am :)

  19. Well at least you didn't have to shovel it...:)
