Welcome to Spring in Connecticut

Well this is two mornings in a row that we woke up to snow on the ground. Not only on the ground, on the car, on the fence and just about everything else. It is also about 20 degrees colder than normal. As you can imagine, having come from 80 degrees, dealing with 40 or less is quite a shock. I have to go out this morning since I have a dentist appointment. Burrrrrrr. Are you having a normal spring or fall where you live. The weather is crazy this year!!

Yikes, I guess you should have stayed in Florida for a bit longer. I'm sure this was a shock to your system. We had a snow storm a few days ago but it melted the same day.

I think next year we may stay longer, the idea is to get away from this weather, lol

I think you left Florida a bit too early, it was better to wait another couple of weeks.

Maybe that is why they call it "Spring". A decent layer of snow will create a springy carpet to walk on. We appear to have had worse weather here since British Summer Time arrived than we had a month earlier.

This snow isn't even springy to walk on, it sleeted and frize over so it is hard and slippery!! Very cold still.

@BelleStarr If the seasons are behaving so illogically then maybe you will get some springy snow in summer instead.

You sure have that right the weather is crazy all around the world. Yesterday it was beautiful here and I didn't even have to wear a coat. I can't believe how warm it was after having 27 degrees the night before then going up to 67 degrees, that is so strange.

Yes New Haven is only about 35 miles from where I live though they didn't get as much snow on the shore line as we got in the center of the state.

Are you getting a replacement? I hear that hip replacements are much easier to recover from than knee replacements. Let me know the date so I can out you on the prayer line. I am soooo cold!!

I thought we were going to have an early spring but I was wrong. We keep having warm days then cold days. We are supposed to have snow flurries on Saturday.

We are having crazy weather all over the world. I suspect that here the issue is El Nino which does cause major weather changes.

@BelleStarr Yes,El Nino does have a bearing effect on the weather. A few months back our city was reeling under a severe monsoon floods.
