April 4th last year brought us a rain/snow/sleet mixture. It was quite cold and the trees were covered with ice. None of that this year. We have had near record-breaking highs all week. Today we are in line for a series of severe thunderstorms. We need the rain, since it is very dry and the tree pollen is thick.
Lucy looked out at the sleet falling on the deck.
All the branches on the trees were coated with ice.
We know that we will have more chilly weather. But we also know that spring is getting closer and closer.
Our quote comes from American author and journalist Hal Borland:
"No Winter lasts forever, no Spring skips its turn. April is a promise that May is bound to keep, and we know it."
HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY WEEKEND, EVERYONE!!!
