Spring Time in the North Woods

Winter's back.

We got about 2" of new snow over night and early this morning.  More is forecast for today possibly with freezing rain.  Ish.

The temperature now at 10 o'clock is 33 degrees.  That looks more like rain (okay, freezing rain) than snow to me.

Our solar panels were covered until about an hour ago when the snow started to melt and slide off.  Even in the deep winter, if any snow sticks it does fairly easily slide/fall off the panels which is a good thing as they're far too high up to have to clean them manually.

I wonder if I ticked off Mother Nature in some way when she had more winter yet to show us.  Yesterday I took down (finally) all the Easter decorations and the remaining winter ones.  This morning I went ahead and put up spring things.  Maybe that will make her feel better . . . or not.

She just isn't letting up for you guys this year. Hope it warms up soon for you.

Keep reminding yourself snow is water and you need that plus it's too early to plant anything anyway.

DFW - Hubby just told me he checked the long-term forecast and it looks like we've got a C-O-L-D week coming up!

Mama Pea said...

Sparkless - You are absolutely right! I think we got thrown off kilter because the previous two years we had very warm weather in March and all the snow was gone unusually early. This year, we're back to normal! (Whatever "normal" is anymore.)

Well, we just today had the first nice spring day if that makes you feel any better! It better come soon for you!

Erin - Your weather forecasters were right! Glad you got a good day . . . to work in your garden?
