the last day of.....

WINTER.  Sure.  15 degrees and snowing out there now, and all week.  Yesterday midday it stopped long enough for all the snow to melt, sunny and warm, crazy March....not at all unusual, but, well, you do start to wish it would really and truly get warm!

I have a favorite winter hat.  It is my only winter baseball cap--because in winter, by its very nature, it is usually too COLD to wear a baseball cap, and I usually have a woolen hat AND hood.  But on winter days that are mild, this is my favorite!  You will be unsurprised to see that it has a dog playing in snow on it.
That thing goes into the CLOSET TODAY dangit, winter BEGONE!  Of course, there are what, 9? 12? baseball caps I wear in warmer weather....

This is the NWS graphic for Ithaca, no joke!

Brrrr! I'm ready for Spring here, too, and we don't get nearly the amount of snow that you do. Be warm.

In Green Bay, the high is 18 degrees today. Not very spring like. Of course, this day last year it was 80 degrees. Crazy. I've stopped paying attention to weather reports. We had a good four snowstorm predictions this year, calling for 6+ inches of snow, all of which turned out to be nothing. Meanwhile, they called for 2-3 inches on Monday and by Tuesday morning, 6 inches had fallen. Now I get my weather by looking out the window and checking our outdoor thermometer. I am definitely ready for a real spring, and then some warm summer weather!

The only certain about today is that we've 12 hours of daylight (I almost said sunlight) and 12 hours of dark.

Yikes that's cold. Better snuggle with Penny to keep warm.

Well, the sun is out here so I guess that's something after so many gray days I lost count. Though it's cold enough to stay inside and be cozy.

I hope you didn't put away all those winter hats!

me and the snakes are going for this spring weather. And the frogs are all singing love songs.

Vicki Wenderlich said...

Wow another 5 days of snow??

We have to block off our sunroom with plastic in winter because it's not insulated (why it doesn't have a door I have no idea - you'd have to ask the previous owners), but it's our favorite room in the house so we miss it!

Momma Fargo said...

Yep. We are down 60 degrees normal from last year. brrrr is an understatement. LOL
