Spring In Racine, WI
On Thursday night, March 26th, I was driving home from meeting a friend, and I opened my window while going 55 on a 4 lane highway and snapped this shot of a beautiful sunset!
You can see in h picture that there is a frozen strip of water, which was a drainage ditch, so it was still cold, but the grass was starting to look a little more yellow than brown and the trees all had buds starting on them.
Then Saturday night, March 28th, a storm system rolled through and lasted until Sunday Afternoon.
We were in Madison visiting family, and thankfully we stayed the night because the roads were terrible!!
From a beautiful sunset to this white stuff that is only welcome from Thanksgiving until New years Day in my book!!
It snowed so much that we were not able to get up our driveway. Thankfully our neighbor, Bill (at the far right of the picture). let us park in his cleared driveway and then came over with his snow blower and helped Kirby dig out!! After the men did the heavy clearing they went to three other neighbor's driveways and cleared them out. I followed up with a shovel clearing the small stuff so if the temps dropped it wouldn't freeze into patches of ice. It was just too heavy to lift and I didn't want to injure my back.
I thought March was supposed to come in like a lion and go out like a lamb ... Somebody needs to tell Mother Nature that she is all mixed up and to get it right!!
