The second day of spring

Mother Nature certainly has a way about her.




True, no one wishes for a spring snowstorm – especially one due to bring 9-12" by the time it's through. And just when the snow we had around all winter had almost melted away.

But there are quite a few upsides to today's storm:
  • As it's Good Friday, we only had a half day of work – so it was almost like a "snowday".
  • A rather short walk through the deep snow in the woods sufficiently wears the beagles out for the afternoon.
  • There is great entertainment watching said beagles plow through the chest-deep snow or, even better, bound great heights like deer or elk.
  • As it is a spring snowstorm, the snow won't stick around for the next three months and we aren't due to get a well-below-freezing drop in temperature afterwards.
  • This storm could bring us to the second all-time snowiest season on record (is that really an upside?!). (Yes, this season is now officially the second all-time snowiest with 96.9 inches. The record is 109 inches which we will not beat! :)
  • And, let's face it, it's pretty – very pretty.

Wow, the second-snowiest winter in history! Those are some beautiful photos. You're right, it is quite pretty. I like the stillness after a snowstorm, as if the snowfall muffles out everyday noise.

Hope you had a great Easter!
