What The Hell, April Fool’s Snow Storm: A Photo Essay

It’s not like we needed more snow at the moment, it being April and all, harumph, harumph, but at least it’s pretty.

  1. Love those snow photos. Yeah, we’ve had snow off and on for a week (and have more coming this afternoon), but it’s Wyoming, so when snow hits in April, people either shrug or go, “Huh, that’s kinda late this year!”

  2. Snow here at Eastercon in Harrogate. We will try to do better at Heathrow next year.

  3. You keep that crap up ‘north.’ I finally decided March 29th that it was safe to take the liner out of my rain coat (what with it being in the mid-70s all week). It’s not difficult to put back in, but it seems wrong to need a liner after Easter in Alabama. Please note I didn’t remove it for most of March because March is actually as good a time for snow as any in here.

  4. What the hell, indeed. We’re supposed to get somewhere between 2 and maybe 5 inches overnight and into tomorrow, and I did NOT order that. It’s April, for goodness’ sake.

  5. The expression on the cat was prime – it had to have thought that the Evil Cold Stuff was gone.

  6. We had a couple of inches of snow on Friday night at Minicon, and several inches again today and a total of 4-7 inches through tomorrow. Yay, spring!

  7. Meanwhile, down here down under (Perth, Western Australia), we were expecting about 34C.

    I should point out: I’m an early April baby. When I was a kid, my birthday was usually grey and drizzly, and I had to wear a jumper (sweater) and a raincoat. By the time I was a teenager, it was cloudy and overcast, but not usually rainy. By the time I was in my twenties, it was usually pretty sunny, but cool. In my thirties, it was jeans and a t-shirt weather, with maybe a cardigan in the evenings. These days, in my forties, I sometimes find I have to wear shorts and a t-shirt on my birthday.

    My actual birthday date, needless to say, has not altered in forty-seven years. If anyone tells me climate change is bunkum, I am likely to laugh in their face.

  8. Looks like Colorado’s normal spring weather escaped and has been roaming about the country while leaving us warmer than normal and dry. Probably either has something to do with that them their jet-stream thingy or possibly the black magic that causes water in the west to flow uphill towards money.
