It’s hard to believe it is already spring, with the cold weather continuing here. Last night and today the temperature dropped below freezing again, and we got a dusting of snow this morning. Fortunately it didn’t interfere with me going out to take care of the drug test for my new job.
Then this afternoon came something I haven’t seen before -– fog and a snowstorm at the same time. Not quite what they call “whiteout” in a blizzard (you can’t have fog and wind together), but it was close. We got an inch of snow out of it. Again, most of it quickly melted before it caused any problems.
In past years we had excessive pollen and mold in the spring, so if the flowers survive all this cold, the yellow precipitation shown in this cartoon could be next.
