Winter Cometh with a Vengence

Well we have been experiencing some extremely warm (very nice) spring like days. With the temp dropping a few degrees each day no drastic change, and then just when we think it is starting to turn to winter we spring back into the 80's a very comfortable place to be.

Then yesterday, we were suddenly hit with an extreme storm that seemed to surprise everyone. There were warnings on the TV and radio and boy they were not kidding; wind and rain and thunder and lightening like I have never seen. It was continuous for about 25/30 minutes just beating down on us. And winds oh yes winds of up to 60 miles an hour.

When we woke this morning, it was still cloudy and cold, summer (and spring) were gone and this time it looks like it is gone for good.

Break out the sweats and hot chocolate, winter has arrived.

Yesterday was an incredible day. The weather was warm and the sky was clear and it was just a make you feel good, glad that you are alive day. But if you really like that kind of weather don't get too set because by evening the wind was blowing and the clouds were coming.

As we woke this morning, it was a totally different day... in more ways then one. It was cloudy and cool and looked like winter again. Well we toughed it out and by noon the wind had blown the clouds away (again) and it was nice (again).

Moral of the blog... enjoy the nice days when you get them because you never know when you will get another one. Or... if you don't like the weather, then just wait- different weather is right around the corner.
