Not Spring!! ...Winter is Still in the Air

Certainly, this has been the mildest winter ever in New York. Just yesterday, still in February, the thermometer reached fifty seven degrees, the air smelled of spring, and I even saw tulips already growing some leaves. A winter without snow. A winter that sarcastically, showed up too early with a terrible storm right before Halloween, last year... And now, when we thought that winter was over, it did it again.

Last night, my husband and I enjoyed the nice temperature outside while we talked about our day. There was no sign of snow. However, a phone call a 4:50am announcing a school two-hour delay due to inclement weather, forced me to get up and look out, so I could understand what was going on.

There it was!! ... The snow that we have not seen thus far. An all-white, outdoor postcard sent from Mother Nature to remind us that after all, "she's got the power". Maybe the groundhog was right, maybe we still have some more weeks of winter...

It is all melting fast though. It also brings a beautiful picture to look at for a few days, a gorgeous combination of so many tones of white and gray... Oh, well!! I guess it isn't time to sing in the rain yet, but to step on puddles of slush, instead. Whatever the weather is in your corner of the world, I hope you have a great weekend. Indoors, outdoors, just make it fun!!
