Blowin' On the Wind

Hi All!

We all knew it wouldn't last! Over the weekend my area enjoyed a bit of a respite from the unusually cold (okay - not COLD but at least chilly) weather which has accompanied this winter season. The weekend was beautiful- around 70 degrees (or more) and so mild. It was heavenly.

And then a wind started blowing . . . and we all just knew it was up to no good!

We were right! Check out what the wind brought up last night/this morning! (The thermometer reads 19 degrees by the way!)

Snow! Okay - it is really more like sleet. Tiny little ice balls. But . . . come on! We have been through this once already this winter! Once is usually our limit!

Yesterday, when I walked, I knew something was up because of this sky.

But the sight of these spring flowers starting to grow lulled me into a false sense of security!

This bird's nest made me think thoughts of spring when there might be new eggs inside . . .

This brave pansy with its bright face just kept me cheerful. I wonder what it is looking like this morning under all the snow . . .




Voice Update: Still doing wonderfully! Yeah!

I had to smile at your pansy and the daffodill shoots coming up!
So thrilling and exciting.
We are expecting an ice storm here
and Buster and I are really fed up!
Glad your voice is doing well.
Greetings from New York.
