Not Going Quietly

Who Cares What the Calendar Says?

Ah Spring! The birds are chirping, the flowers are popping the sun is out, the windows are open. Wait. Not so fast.

Winter is not quite ready to release it's grip. We had a slow start to the season, and it's not a record breaker, but have most definitely had a good bit of snow.

This storm was a slower moved that seem to stall right above us.  The snow was heavy. Then it got even heavier and wetter in the afternoon, clinging to utility lines and trees.  My parents and sisters in Hampton lost power. We never did.

On the evening news they said Stratham got 8 inches. I said to Gar, "I don't think so, there was about 8 inches when you left this morning." Out he went with the ruler. 13.

The thing is, it didn't stop. It kept going and going. I'd say we ended up with a good 15 if not better. And just when you could see the grass.

Ah well. These are the things that happen with the weather no matter where you live. You can't control it.

So although I'm not hopeful that this is the last hurrah (looks like another storm on the horizon), it might be the last snow that sticks to all the trees making things look oh so pretty.

Enjoy another glimpse of Winter before you're headlong into Springing up your flower beds.

It was almost eerie this morning, before dawn broke. Everything covered in white, and all quiet.

Then the sun came up.

If there is a biggo space between the last picture and this paragraph. So sorry. Tried and tried again to delete it but no go.

So, suffice it to say, Winter just ain't ready to go yet and there's not a darn thing we can do about it.  Did you get snow yesterday, or is Spring really starting to pop where you are?

By the way, I'm so behind in responding to your lovely comments, but know that I always read them.  I'll catch up soon. Promise.

Enjoy the day. Spring will soon be on it's way. Honestly, it can't snow in June, right?

Damn. I shouldn't have said that.

Ciao for now,


  1. I love the red barn on the hill. LOVE.

    I can't believe how much snow you got!!

  2. Wow, I can't believe how much snow your have. No snow here in the Midwest, but it was the coldest day we have had all month. I really need Spring to come soon. I love that photo with the red barn.
