I’m Feeling a Bit Post-Tropical

Every 6 years I find myself amused when Bonnie comes up on the list of hurricane names.  This year I particularly enjoyed the tweets that sounds more like they are about a person than a storm:

My Sign of Spring

Most people seem to have a landmark that means spring has arrived.  For me, it’s my grandmother’s crocus blooming.  Usually when I get home from vacation there’s a few that are peaking out.  There  certainly weren’t flowers this year.  But this week, a bit a green peaked out and in a couple of days, there they were.

I’m wondering if this winter will ever really end.

I Think This is Number 4

It’s overcast and snowing.  Another storm is beginning.  This is just a regular snow storm.  We had one of those last Saturday.  We had a blizzard a week ago yesterday.  And another blizzard Monday.  That makes this snow storm number 4 in 10 days.

The thing about living in the Bay of Fundy is that we get a fair amount of rain when the rest of the province is getting snow.  We’re a bit spoiled.  This last batch of storms: all snow.  We’ve never seen anything like it.

While the snow is a bit much, this current storm is more typical; the temperature is forecast to rise, meaning we’ll get rain. There are no ditches that aren’t full of snow and the ground is frozen. There’s no where for the water to go.  Add to that temperatures well below zero the day after and I think we’re about to have a very big skating party. I’m actually hoping for snow instead of rain at this point. Otherwise, it’s just going to be a big mess.  And let’s face it, it is quite pretty.
