melting March madness meets colour♥fool SPRING


March this year has brought melting madness our way… not once, but twice! This is exciting stuff!!! Exciting, since we are generally surrounded by snow for 5 months of every year and do not expect noticeable signs of melting until early-ish April. But this winter has been fairly short, with snow arriving in November and melting mid-March 🙂 . . . Plus for our first time since moving here in 2009, March weather has actually been warm enough to sit outside wearing shorts/tank tops. Compare that to 2009, when March temperatures plummeted to -50 with the windchill… And see what I mean?

Yep, this melting March madness stuff is super-exciting!springSnow_KWH5942

But alas, therein lurks a deeper madness… I call it the “flutter-by effect”. That’s when spring gets sprung into action and becomes such a distraction that none of the creative dots can find a decent connection.

So what’s a blogger to do? Let me know if you know. For now, I’m just glad to have connected a couple of blogful dots for this post, gosh-yarn-it! And with snow in the forecast, more dots are bound to get connected soon…

    Global warming? Weird here where I’m from. All sunny, warmish this past month. Abnormal!

    • Perhaps global warming… happy to hear it’s been nice where you are! And where would that be? We were nearly +20ºC (mid-60’s’º F) yesterday and happily basking in the sun. But then a storm blew in around supper time and this AM we woke up all covered in white… sigh! Perfectly timed for April 1st, but oh well… it’s no joke 😦 ♥ ❤

    What a quick change! Sunny then next day snow!
    Right now, it’s nighttime and there’s lightening flashing across the sky!
    A lot of it!

    • Uh ohh… sounds like you got that crazy no-joke April 1st weather from us (north-central Alberta Canada) 😦 We’re thankfully back to sunshine today and the snow is gone! Hope your weather is improving, as well! 🙂 ♥ ❤

    OOOH! The lightening just kept on and on. One flashed near my window! Then it rained hard, a down pour! Today’s sunny and cool.

    • Oh boy… thunder/lightning directly overhead is scary stuff! Is it somewhat normal for you at this time of year? Around here, this was the first time I’ve ever heard of lightning in March. Glad to hear all is settled down now! 🙂 ♥ ❤

        No, not at all! Never even ever had seen it like this on the first of April! March was all sunny and warm, unusual. After the rainstorm,the next day everything is all budding up!
        Weird!

    Forgot to say, last summer on the 1st week of August, sunflowers were out and blooming. Usually it does that in September. Weird.

    • Wow, that is quite a shift in the sunflower schedule. Interesting to note such a tiny detail in the vastness of climate change. Hope it’s not a bad sign :-/ ♥ ❤
