Snow today, melting tomorrow?

Snow today, melting tomorrow?
wheel of the year

Yes, it's snowing today, and astronomical spring began in the Northern Hemisphere, with the vernal equinox on March 20. There was also a total solar eclipse, visible in Iceland and England.

For those of us here,  along the City by the Lake, it was a Friday, and  it was warm enough for a lighter winter coat or jacket. Not quite the brief fling with the 60's of a few days before, but springlike enough.  Buds swelling on the branches, pussy willows opening. Enough the cold and snow--bring on the daffodils!

In the calendar of our dreams, we are so ready for spring.  How did you celebrate the first warm days? Did the Flower and Garden show inspire you with colors?  Did you do some yard work this weekend?

Now,  it's Monday, and it's snowing again, and it's really piling up.  There are flight delays. There are traffic problems. Still, there is a certain beauty.  Why? Because it won't last.

This is  March, remember, the month of changing seasons, and many weathers. Snow today, melting tomorrow....

  • Usual thing--various meteorologists trot out various models indicating 1 to 3 inches, which seem to go up Sunday afternoon, and we get 5. Phil Schwarz himself seems to get 3 from Accuweather.

    Not as depressing as it happening in May, but since I got a free deluxe car wash last Monday, I'm not going out today.

    Last Monday, I got some Filipino ice cream.

    Ice cream, what a treat. I opened the windows, made a cucumber salad...

    Yes, about 5 inches of snow here, too. First, heavy and wet, then lighter and fluffier...

    Will people shovel, I wonder?

  • In reply to Weather Girl:

    Community association's snow plow contractor made a pass.

  • In reply to jack:

    plow went through just now. snow is melting already....

  • Very timely post -- thanks. I have seen a sidewalk on my street turn right back into the rink it was when the thaw had never come -- even with the path through it the same shape. Sigh.

    Thanks for reading. Yes, the melting has begun, but snow season isn't over, yet!
