Now everyone has heard of Indian Summer. That wonderful return of summer no matter how brief. But Indian Winter?????? We checked the official records at the Onley National Weather Bureau for March 1 2011 at 12:01AM and March officially came in at 49.8F. So maybe it didn’t come in like a Lion but it was no Lamb. Possibly a Jackalope at best. By the end of the day though it was 27.8F and that is how our March has been. Up to 78 and down to 25. BUT we are ending our ficklest month in a Winter Wonderland.
We awoke this morning to SNOW. AND after checking our pluses and taking our blood pressures having coffee, we looked out again and it was still SNOWING!!
We’re worried that if “March comes in and out like a Jackalope” what this will do to the long held theory that April Showers bring May Flowers…. While Beatrice was out documenting this outrageous occurrence i started checking some of these giant snow flakes closely. Amazingly one said “Made in Lisbon Me.” We were astonished…. We are not sure of this BUT we think someone may have put the “Grammie Whammy” on us. Another said “Fabricated in Fairbanks”. Many were shaped like a Maple Leaves. And we are not sure but one said “Produkt i Sverige”. And then there is the ”Sacrilege of the Hammock”.
Beatrice seems to think it may be that we left the ‘Let it Snow” banner up a little too long. No matter though, by this evening it will be mostly melted and help increase the amount of MUD we have. Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday, snow or not.
