Don't Ya Just Love Spring???


Thought you might like to see some pictures of the first weekend of Spring here at my house! Yep...just when you thought it was safe to go outside, along comes another darn snow storm, dumping about 30 cm of snow! Yesterday, we experienced an ordeal that I do not wish to go through again, ever! We were at my sons' hockey tournament in a town approximately 1 hour away, when a winter or should I say "Spring" storm moved in. We were driving home in the country at 9:30 in the evening, and visibility on the highway was virtually nil. It was very scary, dark, blinding snow coming at us and we could hardly see the road. After driving about half way home,in these terrifying conditions, we decided to pull off the road near a small community of homes and we parked in the parking lot of a fire hall to wait out the storm. We slept for a couple of hours in the car...luckily we had a blanket and warm coats on. At about midnight the snow had almost stopped. We resumed our drive, although the roads were treacherous, and we had to go quite slow. This part of the drive is quite hilly, as we were now entering the foothills, and even though my husband has driven this road many times, it was still nerve racking to say the least! Thank goodness we made it home safely. This morning the snow started up again and now it looks like Christmas at our house! Pin It

Holy Cow! How far north do you live? I'm on Canada/US border and we have been cold, but no accumulated snow!

Wow - we rarely get snow like that in England. I hope the snow clears soon and you can get on with Spring!

Maybe this will be your last snow for the winter...I mean spring. We have not had ideal spring weather either, but luckily no snow.

The snow is GORGEOUS even if unwelcome...hopefully you didn't have any flowers already popping up their lovely heads.
