You know that saying "If you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes and it'll change"? That's what's happening here today in St Catharines. She's just throwing out everything in her closet. It's cloudy, it's sunny, it's snowing, then it's sunny again, then cloudy, then sunny, then snowing... I can't keep up with Ma's changing mood. Right now there's a mini blizzard out my window.

It couldn't be happening to a nicer person. Try to enjoy it while it lasts... You know Mother Nature will give you sun and heat soon enough. Have a good day.

In the hour I’ve been here for lunch it’s been sunny, overcast, snowing, sunny, cloudy, snowing, sunny, and now overcast again. Spring starts Monday, which means the weather will get really confused!

That might be why Ma is tossing everything out all at once.

I love your title. Mother Nature sure is throwing everything out. We had some days like that. Yesterday was real nice and it is suppose to be that way today. At least I hope it is.

Very unpredictable weather. Yesterday, I admired the neighbors lovely blooming daffodils. Last night and today, bitterly cold and snowing. I am just glad it's a clearance sale, rather than a going out of business sale!!

@BarBaraPrz Winter has it's return off and on from now until May or so. Rarely does it stay warm permanently this early, so I just go with the flow. One thing we cannot control is the weather. We can possibly change our location, but weather is weather, and there will be some form of bad weather any place we land.
