This is Spring Right

Okay, the calendar said it was Spring on March 20. Here it is April 8 and we're in the middle of a winter storm warning. Some places are supposed to get up to 6 inches of heavy wet slushy snow. I just took two inches off my car. I told my son I would be taking him to work tonight. He works 7-3, so you know I'll be up that long as usual. He wasn't too pleased when he looked outside and saw the snow pictured above taken from my side door. We're in a winter warning until 10 PM. I think we're going to get more snow than we did when the blizzard was predicted two weeks ago. So how's the weather by you? Are you having unseasonable weather as well? Thanks for reading.

Same thing than you basically, Spring is refusing to show up for work.

When it finally does it will probably be like most years - go straight to summer.

@just4him Here you never know from the end of October to about mid April if you are going to run the heat or the air, but once the last cold snap has made it 'a appearance it will be hot til October again

@Elizaby That's about the way it is here as well, oh we don't run the air in winter, but spring is up in the air whether I turn the furnace off or leave it on. I had it off more than on in March. So far I've had it on every day this month.

Cheer up, one day you'll look outside and spring will have moved to summer and the heat to go with it.

@Jessicalynnt Sadly, you will never, as long as you remain in Texas, be subjected to winters harsh winds, wind chills, be seen in heavy parkas, layered to the point you can barely walk - I remember the snowsuits of my youth - However, sadly, you will also never make snow angels, snowmen, or ice skate - outside - indoor rinks do not count - as long as you are in the state of Texas enjoying sunshine and warm weather with pesky insects flying around you and invading your space, having to take more than one shower a day just to get rid of the sweat moving causes. The air might be sweet with the tantalizing smell of flowers, in the state of Texas, but it can't hold a candle to the wonders of winter in Wisconsin.

It's been warm here this spring. The last time they predicted snow/rain mixture, all it did was rain. Of course, we're not finished yet and could still get a good snowstorm. Love your photo, by the way. It looks like my neighborhood!

Thanks. Now that I have a camera I have it out and ready all the time. We were supposed to have a blizzard a couple weeks ago with 8-14 inches of snow predicted. It wasn't a blizzard here and we got 6 inches. Today they're predicting 6 inches in areas and I think we're going to get it.

@just4him One good thing about spring storms is that the snow doesn't stay on the ground long.

I saw that on your profile. It makes me wonder when winter will give up. Not like we even had a decent winter this year. Another warm one with not much snow. So maybe winter is making up for it now.

Luckily, it has been spring all week here with some days at 85 and today over 70, but clouds will be returning very soon with rain, not snow.

It was nice Friday as a dry cold front came through which dropped overnight temps into the 40s but we usually have one or two of these in April. Temp last night (Friday) was 46 and mid afternoon on Saturday it is already 78

We are on Summer season now. I think that is because of the change of weather that is why you are still getting winter warning

I used to live in Western PA. I remember April snowstorms and I kind of liked them but I could walk wherever I needed to go if the roads got to slick. I live in Central Louisiana and if I remember correctly April 8 was warm and humid and severe thunderstorms.

Do you like the change from snow to no snow? We've got nice spring weather now and we've mowed the lawn for the first time a week ago.

@just4him I still would love to see snow I like it. We actually had about 4 inches two years ago.

@marky7 Going two years without snow is difficult for me. I lived in San Diego for four years and Guam in the middle of that time, and not seeing snow especially at Christmas was very hard.

Uhhh... no, we have been following a normal, albeit slightly wetter, Spring this year. The rain is keeping me from keeping up with my normal yard clean-up, but that is about all it is doing. It was 77 degrees (F) here today. Cloudy and drizzling rain, but warm.

Yes, it's down right unimaginably happening! Days don't seem to match up, but to think we're getting snow tonight plus rain here. How are some outdoor events that start around this time going to begin!

Somehow they always do, don't they. Winter will be finally hushed into silence and spring will don her new green coat and the sun will shine and life will renew itself.
