April Showers

April showers bring May flowers is the phrase. I think that phrase usually refers to spring rain showers.

Temperatures reached into the 60’s and even the 70’s in February and March.  However, winter wasn’t over quite yet.

This past weekend we received around 6 to 8 inches of snow over 2 days – the largest single snow storm of the whole season!

And now temperatures are back into the low teens overnight. The high temperatures are expected to be back above freezing later this week and a lot of the snow will likely melt pretty soon, but a little more snow is forecast for this coming weekend.

With the previous warm weather, we were considering putting away the snow equipment for the summer. Luckily we hadn’t gotten around to putting it away just yet.
