This is the time of year when things normally begin to warm up in our part of the world. This is the time of year we see signs of Spring all around us. It also becomes a season for allergies. But the early part of the month had us experiencing a snowstorm instead as we drove through the Midwest. This was the scene on the road in the morning the next day as we drove back home to Maryland after the storm.Back east, the cherry blossom tree in our backyard looked miserable compared to past years. The blossoms looked thin and sparse. Things then started to improve as we approached the middle of the month. There was an awakening of the blossoms. There were even a couple of warm days to go with this.This phase of Spring did not last too long. A heavy snowstorm hit parts of the Midwest once again last weekend. It also got colder here in the Northeast, and we got a significant amount of rain that put an end to nature’s show. We now have white stuff on the ground and flying around all over the place, and it is not snow! Strange weather! I wonder what we have in store for the rest of the month.
Not exactly the type of weather one was hoping to experience. It is still cold outside! Brrr….
