Wacky Weather Week

We have been having weird weather here since we returned from our trip to Japan.  When we returned, there was plenty of snow on the ground - just as there was when we left the week before.  A few days later, the temperatures rose into the high 30s/low 40s and it all started melting!  Let me tell you - I prefer just snow.  The ice/slush mixture is not easy to walk on.  By Thursday, it was raining and the snow was almost all gone.  The only trace was a little at the curb from the snowplows.  This past weekend, the temperatures dipped back down into the 20s and the snow started up again.  All I have to say is "YAY"!  

Yucky slushy/icy mess on the first day it started thawing

The snow was melting and then refreezing at night - to ice

The snow is back - as is my personal shoveler!

After a snowstorm - I love the way it makes the trees look

After a snowstorm - can barely see the road or sidewalks even though they had been shoveled/plowed several times

Me too! I love looking out my windows and seeing the snow cling to the branches!
