Nature Friday - Contest Update

We are starting to wonder if Mother Nature is playing an all month's April fools joke on us. Here is a sample of the weather the past 5 days.


Tuesday but it could have been Monday-Wednesday

Did we mention the balmy temperatures of -14C/7F?

One of us enjoyed it.

So while we didn't get a lot of snow, the snow kept falling and the snow on the deck and backyard stayed.

Look at all the snow still between the trees - this doesn't count for the contest but look! You can also see a sample of the snow that remains in the backyard - taken yesterday around 3:30 pm. 

For some reason Blogger is not letting Lady attach another picture of the backyard (there are a lot of HBO words being said, we are wondering if Blogger is also hoping for spring), so you will have to imagine, we still have it.

Sorry Bertie, while we were hopefully, the snow did not go away on April 19 (in fact we got more).

We remain cautiously optimistic that one of the following people may have the right date (it looks like it may be getting more seasonably warm aka above 0)

Time will tell!

Hope you are all keeping well and having better weather!

  5. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh the race is on. It will be close to 80 here today. I'm gonna huff and puff really hard to get some home Dixie air up there.

  6. That wasn't nice for more snow to come although it might help us win the contest since our date is late in May. We really hope we don't win though for your sake.

  7. Are you sure that's not FAKE SNOW?
    Toodle pip!

  8. We've had snow falls on and off for the past week. But it melts immediately on the ground.

  9. More snow??!! Sheesh! That is a dirty trick.

  10. We got some snow this past week too. Fortunately it's warmed up and the snow is gone now.

  11. Our weather is like yours :( But the pups don't mind! I'm glad that Phod likes it.

  12. Whoa...we received 6-8" last Friday and by next week, temps will be in the 80's! I'm getting whiplash with this weird yo-yo weather. Stay warm and safe.

  13. BRRRRRRRR....we sure hope the temperatures warm up this week!!

  14. On top of everything else, I can't believe that you have snow! Talk about CRAZY!! It reminds me of when we lived in Alaska, and seeing snow in May was not all that unusual. I hope for warmer weather for you very soon, and for us too.
