Oh, Well . . .

We woke up to this scene this morning.


As Sweet Sue will remind me, it's poor man's fertilizer.  Sigh.

Could be worse.

Wow! I can only imagine. Think this is your last little cold snap?

Rain said...

Oh NOOOOOO!!!!! I can't believe you got more snow!!! Thank goodness there was no precipitation in our forecast because I woke up to -6 and crunchy grass. Yes, it could be worse....I hope it's sunny soon to melt all that white "fertilizer"!!!

Susan said...

Well, shoot. That sure isn't what you want to see this time of year. Hope it's a one-off and goes away NOW!

Sue said...

Don't you DARE send that my way!!!!
Last year we had that May 15. If there was a bridge to jump off, I would have.
Sending you WARM WISHES for melty free fertilizer!

Kristina said...

Holy smokes! Ha ha, had to laugh at the fertilizer comment.

Michelle said...

That's a beautiful, light dusting. Glad you didn't get dumped on; good excuse to quilt, right?

MrsDuncanMahogany said...

Oh yeah, us too Mama Pea, us too. :(

DFW said...

Hopefully the last little blast? And, here I was doing a happy dance for temps to hold below 80 today.

My condolences. -Jenn

Mama Pea said...

Laurie - Sure hope so! All this week is calling for rain/snow mix possible. THEN maybe we can have spring??

Mama Pea said...

Rain - The temp remained chilly all day but I'm happy to say the snow had disappeared by noon. Good riddance! ;o}

Mama Pea said...

Susan - You may hear more whining from me if the prediction for this whole week comes true! :o(

Mama Pea said...

Sue - Thanks for the warm wishes! Glad you don't live by a bridge.

Mama Pea said...

Kristina - "Snow is poor man's fertilizer." I read long ago that that was an old farmer's saying. Makes one feel a little better, eh?

Mama Pea said...

Michelle - Quilting? Ha! I had a meeting this morning, a visitor this afternoon and then I spent the rest of the day trying to save my seedlings from damping off! Oh yeah, and I did our weekly laundry, too. (Just another quiet day on the ol' homestead.) ;o}

Mama Pea said...

MrsDM - Don't know what area you're in but who needs snow now?? At least ours was gone by noon. How 'bout yours?

Mama Pea said...

DFW - We do live in different parts of the country, don't we? :o)

Mama Pea said...

Glenda - Thanks! You could still see a couple of white flakes even in your area! (But I'm NOT wishing that on you.)

Mama Pea said...

Thanks, Jenn. You may have to send more condolences before our week is over! :o/

Vera said...

We are having a cold snap as well, but at least we have not had snow, just a severe frost which singed a lot of the newly sprouting trees, shrubs, and seedlings!

Mama Pea said...

Oh no, Vera! Your frost which nipped newly sprouted trees, shrubs, and seedlings is worse than our snow. Sorry to hear that. :o(

Farmer Barb said...

Dang. Hard freeze with it?

Mama Pea said...

Farmer Barb - No, luckily it was right at 32-33 degrees. Very wet snow and no damaging frost. Squeaked by this one!
