Snow in April

Why, yes, that is snow. Why, yes, it is April 15th. No, I don’t know what’s wrong with the world.

Snow in April

Why, yes, that is snow.

Why, yes, it is April 15th.

No, I don’t know what’s wrong with the world. It’s just crazy.

Er… Hello? Mother Nature? Anyone home?

I think Mother Nature is drunk. It’s April 12th and it’s going to snow tonight. They’re saying it might be a “nor’easter-like” storm. Wonderful.

Wonderful. It’s been in the 30’s for like the past 2 weeks. Where the hell is SPRING? I mean, yeah, it’s my least favorite season (allergies, mud, etc.), but still, even I get tired of winter after a while. Y’know, like after nearly 6 months of the year.

I love New England weather for the variety, but this is getting old. I have a feeling that we’re going to basically miss out on spring entirely this year – we’re just going to jump straight into summer. There’ll be snow on the ground, and then 2 days later it’ll be 80 degrees out, and that’ll be it, it’s summer. It’s like someone is saying “Mother nature, it’s springtime!” and she’s all hung over and just waves her arm around and says “mnnnn – just let me sleep a bit longer…” and suddenly the weather goes all crazy.

C’mon mother nature, get out of bed, grab a cup of coffee and get back on the job. You slacker.

Timeline of Weather

We’ve had some crazy weather the past few days.

We’ve had some crazy weather the past few days. It really become apparent once you spell it out clearly like this:

Wednesday: Warm, sunny, mid 60’s (F). Really felt like spring was here!

Thursday: Still pretty warm, but the temperature really started to drop in the afternoon.

Friday: Got cold pretty fast, and then started to snow. Hard. By 2pm it was coming down at a rate of about an inch an hour – and it continued like that until around midnight.

Saturday: Sunny and warm enough (32-33 degrees) that a lot of snow started to melt.

Sunday: Sunny but cold (20’s).

Monday: Warm enough during the day that snow started to melt again – probably just a few degrees above freezing.

Monday night: It started snowing again.

Okay, Mother Nature… I know this is New England, but seriously: WTF???

Weather

So I woke up this morning, and the weather guy on the radio said it was 54 degrees out (at 7am). And then he said that we would have 6-12 inches of snow tomorrow.

Say what?

Yes, snow. My ForecastFox plugin currently tells me that there is a Winter Storm Watch in effect for this region. And I’m even seeing the word “nor’easter” used.

Yesterday it was easily more than 60 degrees out. It was warm, sunny, and very pleasant. Tomorrow there will be snow.

God I love living in New England! 🙂

Now THAT’s More Like It

Seems like some snow is in the forecast…

So I woke up this morning, and my ForecastFox plugin looks like this:

Forecast: snow

Yeah, that’s current conditions, today’s forecast, and tonight, tomorrow, and tomorrow night’s forecast as well.

I love snow.
