First Day of Spring !! (okay, if you say so) !!

Snow mixed with ice pellets ending early this afternoon then cloudy with 40 percent chance of rain showers or flurries. Snow and ice pellet amount 5 to 10 cm. Local blowing snow early this afternoon. Wind southeast 40 km/h gusting to 70 becoming south 30 gusting to 50 this afternoon. High plus 2

The official start to spring was at 8 am today!! This is what we opened our eyes to:










"the first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another"

All I can say is those little rodent groundhogs better hide a little longer, wherever they are for getting our hopes up and telling us we are going to have an early spring... haaaaaa

What little sign of daffodils we saw last week breaking ground, are now covered in snow!

But, guaranteed, spring is just around the corner.. why?? because the
''spring weight restrictions now in effect'' signs are everywhere!!

So, now I look forward to making a ''spring snow woman'' when this wind tames down a bit and I will dress her up in a colorful ''spring'' outfit and a pair of flip flops!!

HAPPY SPRING everyone!!
