Spring in Winter

Yesterday was January 27, 2012.  And it was almost 60 degrees.  Even though it rained in the morning and hard the night before, it was a wonderful day for a walk and Shepherdstown, West Virginia is close enough to be an easy drive, yet far enough to be away.

This has been an interesting time for weather.  In October 2011, we had a record snow.  Last weekend, it was a typical Mid-Atlantic ice storm.  Yesterday it was 57 degrees-next week the forecast calls for temps in the 60’s.

When, and I mean when, not if, we finally have winter, it will be tough to take.  That snow in October was actually a treat as everyone knew it would be gone in a day.  Here today, gone tomorrow has been the case in winters gone by as well, but, as I have posted before, we have had some epic winters lately as the photograph above made after the Snowmageddon of 2010 illustrates.

Here’s hoping something like that is not around the corner.

Take care.
