When after months of heavy snowfall the ice banks melted, when the roadsides and sidewalks finally were snow and ice-free, we thought Spring came. The thermometer displayed mid 60sF on two days in March and we took it as a sign to put our winter clothes away.
But then a funny thing happened. April came around and April knows how to make an entrance. April brought snow. It was actually lovely to wake up on the first day of April, look outside your window and see everything white again. What April Fools’ Day?
Despite the snow fatigue, this is quite beautiful and quite welcome, because you know it will be gone in a day and everything will start turning green. Sooner or later.
