A return to winter???

In talking about our mild winter this year, I often bragged about not having to crank up my snowblower all winter.  That just may come back to haunt me.

If the weather forecast for western New York is accurate, tomorrow will be a nasty winter day with blowing snow, up to six inches according to one website.

My lawn has already been mowed this year and needs it again.  I've worn shorts and t-shirts and sandals this year. . . my friend, Nancy, and I had plans to go kayaking today for the first time this year.  Instead, it is cold, windy, with a drizzling rain out right now, definitely not good paddling weather.

In organizing the clothes I will wear to work this week, I suppose I should pull out a few winter items.

As they say in Rochester, if you don't like the weather here, stick around, it will change!

    1. No photos! Too depressing. All my lilac bushes and some others in my yard were bent in half. Fortunately, when I just got home, the snow had melted and they were back to their original position! I hope this doesn't ruin the blooms on the lilacs and my other flowering shrubs.
