Different kinds of weather

“In the spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six different kinds of weather inside of four and twenty hours.” Mark Twain

Until this year, I might have accused Twain of exaggerating with this statement.  Now?

Maybe not.

It’s easy to forget that last spring seemed equally erratic at the time.  I was searching my images of March 2013, and I found a short video clip of a snowfall that came to our York home (where there is normally much less snow than in the DC area) on March 24.  I took a screen shot from that video, which is shown above.  Isn’t it funny how tricky our memories can be?  I don’t remember last year having the same ups and downs of this year.

If it’s spring weather when this is published two weeks from the day I’m writing it (when it’s COLD and windy) let’s all rejoice!  If it’s not, let’s keep hoping…and if you’re fed up with snow by now, see the post linked below for a more colorful image of springtime.

Something is afoot

This post was first published seven years ago today. The original post, comments and photo are linked, along with two other related posts, below. These links to related posts, and their thumbnail photos, do not appear in the blog feed; they are only visible when viewing the individual posts by clicking on each one. I have no idea why, nor do I know how they choose the related posts. That’s just the way WordPress does things.

    That might describe the weather here yesterday; drizzle, rain in sheets, hail, 40 mile an hour winds, and 75 degrees heat at 2p.m.. And in the midst of everyhting lighting that seemed frozen in the sky – not a bolt but more a jagged line in the sky that stayed like a photo etch on a cloud.

    • That kind of lightening is always a thrilling sight, even if a bit frightening. Sometimes when I’m driving I’ll see a bolt shoot across the sky from one end of my windshield to the other– WOW!

  2. Judy from PA

    I’ve been wondering it you were on vacation somewhere because you hadn’t been posting comments for a little while. But today, bingo! So I binge read all the comments going backwards through the dates until I found the last one I had read. I find them to be interesting and often helpful, too.

    I’m glad you’re still putting up your blog every day.

    • Thanks, Judy. The comments were badly backlogged because of my getting behind due to other obligations and then discovering they changed up the software. I’m getting slower and slower with all these learning curves! I’m glad you enjoy reading the comments. In the early years, they were more much more numerous and longer than the blog itself. It took loads and loads of time to respond in detail to each one (and I couldn’t bear to just say “thanks” and leave it at that). But I made some friends that way and kept in touch with others, and I had something to do during those long hours at the hospital or chemo clinic. Those were difficult years but Jeff was still alive and I had a baby grandson who was still (at that time) in my life, so they still seem happier than now… but life must go on, and it does, with some days better than others.

Thanks for encouraging others by sharing your thoughts:
