I really thought we were done with winter. I was skeptical when I saw snow in the forecast for Sunday, especially since it was so mild the day before. But snow it did, big white puffy snowflakes. The biggest we've ever seen. They were the size of cotton balls. It was extremely windy though and my power flickered a lot for about an hour.
It stopped mid day and by late afternoon, almost all the snow was gone. Got up on Monday and it had started again. I didn't want to cancel my appt in Plymouth so I drove up there in sloppy, slushy conditions, especially on the side roads. I was never so happy to get home safely. So many more errands to do but I wasn't going back out again. We were told it would change to rain by 2 pm.
But it didn't change to rain. It snowed all day long and into the early evening. Needless to say, I was not amused.
At least it was done by Tuesday so that I could get out and finish everything that needed to be done. The melt started around noon and the icicles were pretty.
All the flowers and budding trees are covered in snow and I hope they don't die.
Those icicles were running a steady stream of water. You can see narrow flowing water on the bottom, and a big droplet falling from the one on the right.
At least it will melt very quickly, but I sure hope we're done!
