S(No)w Fooling

The calendar reads this date, but Mother Nature apparently doesn't use one and instead is playing tricks in the form of more winter weather.

According to the National Weather Service (NWS) latest update, a winter storm warning remains in effect here in New Hampshire for the next 7 hours until 4 p.m. this afternoon.

"Snow will be heavy at times, especially this morning. The snow will likely mix with rain in many areas this afternoon. The heavy, wet snow will stick to trees limbs and may lead to power outages as the weight of snow takes down branches."

The wintry weather started yesterday morning around 10 a.m. here in Nashua, NH. Roadways in and around the area were wet but without any significant accumulation.
The view above is from our apt window earlier this morning. It seemed that the snow has stopped (briefly) and by the sound against the windows it was sleeting.  

However, within the past 30 minutes, the snowflakes have resumed. The NWS site cautions that the Storm Warning will remain in effect until late afternoon: "Hazard types: Heavy snow, mixing with sleet and then rain, Snow accumulation of 10 to 14 inches, Northeast 10 to 15 mph winds with gusts up to 25 mph, temperatures in the lower 30s, and visibilities one quarter mile or less at times."
No Fooling indeed . . spring is delayed here this year, maybe by mid-April ?

We got it as well here, starting around the same time yesterday. At one point yesterday afternoon when I looked out, it was very heavy. It's still falling today.

It has been a crazy spring hasn't it?

62 degrees here, sun just came out so it will soon get warmer. Inch and a half of rain yesterday and overnight. Perfect for my newly planted peas and onions.
Pansies are beautiful.
Camellias still in bloom, late daffodils opening, many finished. Saw my first iris today. Peonies up about a foot. Fields purple with henbit or yellow with turnip greens.
Took the John Deere out for a spin last week.
Putting dirt in the Stand-Uppity Garden this week. Got heirloom bean seeds just itching to get planted.
Keep your snow up there.

I know...the weather had been really strange this year. Here in TN we really did not have a winter but just when some things started to come out and bloom, it got cold! Crazy.

Oh I'm so sorry! We've had a lot of rain yesterday and today is 50 but cloudy. It feels cold!!
Hopefully the real spring weather is soon to be.
