I Hope It’s a Trend and Not a Fluke

Some of you may remember that back in December I was lamenting the lack of snow. I deleted my old blog so I can’t link to the post but I did take this picture.
I was concerned we weren’t going to have any snow for Christmas but just shy of two weeks we got a boatload of the white fluffy stuff, much to my relief and the benefit of my Holiday spirit.
Since then we’ve had the mildest winter on record in about 65 years. Temperatures have been up by an average of 10 degrees and snowfall has been minimum. We had to shovel the driveway less than a handful of times. Beauty, eh!
This morning I took this picture.
You could almost play Spot the Differences with these two pics.
Today will be the second day in a row where the temperature will reach a totally ridiculous for March high of 16 degrees C (that’s 60.8 F for my American friends).
Winter traditionally lasts about 6 months here (often more but RARELY less than that). This year though, we have had just 3 months of winter. It’s mind boggling. Of course, I’m not ruling out another round of snow sometime over the next couple of weeks but even if we do get some, it won’t last very long.
Anyway, it smells like Spring and it feels like Spring and it is GLORIOUS!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! 😀
