All week I’d been watching the last lingering patch of snow that clung to life in the shade of our porch. Finally, on Thursday, the first day of spring, it met its demise. The last remnant of a long winter was gone.
But, yesterday we got slammed with a spring snow storm. The snow began to fall hard around 11 a.m. and continued well into the night. My son and I ventured out into the storm in the afternoon. I thought, hopefully, this would be his last chance this season to play in the snow. We woke up this morning to a total of 10 inches of snow. We were lucky. Some places just a few miles from us got 15 inches.
I would like to say for sure this is the last snow of the season, but you never know around here. We had snow for Easter last year too, and last year the holiday was a month later.
We were supposed to go to an Easter egg hunt this morning, but it’s pretty hard to find even brightly colored eggs in a foot and a half of snow.
The one good thing about snow this time of year is that it doesn’t last long. The sun is out now and it’s above freezing. Little streams of melting snow are already trickling down our steep drive way.
