Easter Snow Bunnies

I know it's perverse, but I've actually been liking the cold weather and snow, even though I myself said last night that when it's baseball season, it should be illegal to snow. On Saturday, we had snow showers all day and I had to clean snow off the car at least four times while I was out. But it was never very much snow. The last few days have actually been my favorite winter weather -- cold, but not bitter; dusting of snow, but not enough to impede travel on foot or in a car. I guess it really shouldn't happen in early April, though.

Meanwhile, my poor daffodils and tulips are finished. The daffs had started to sprout in January when it was unseasonably warm, and then went dormant for a couple of months, then started to grow in March, and had bloomed along with the tulips by April 1. But on the 4th it all fell apart for them. Now they're just drooped over, with very low prospects for the spring.

In a totally unrelated development, I bought the latest Snow Patrol CD, Eyes Open. Very good modern rock stuff. In spots, it's something like a tighter, edgier Coldplay. The song that's all over radio here is "Chasing Cars," which goes through my head a bit lately. And it's mixed so that the high end isn't painfully annoying, too!

We've had cold weather over here in Minnesota too, with more snow on the way soon. I'd probably be enjoying it the way you are, if we hadn't had that 60-80° weather a few weeks ago...

Yeah, that did make us spoiled, didn't it... we had 81° (F) as a high two days in a row near the end of March, and 71 on April Fools Day (hm... coincidence?). It was all downhill from there.

Here the heat wave broke several days before April Fool's. According to the NWS Twin Cities local climate data, it was: 65° on 3/23 and 3/24; 73° on 3/25; 81° on 3/26; 65° on 3/27; 54° on 3/28; 57° on 3/29; 49° on 3/30, 3/31, and 4/1; 51° on 4/2; and below 50° ever since.

Ah well, after I do my taxes, it'll be May and June before I know it. :-)
