St. Patrick’s Day Blizzard–Final Winter’s Bang?

Here in my neck of the woods, they always say that a final winter blizzard will occur on or around St. Patrick’s Day. This year, the first day of spring occurs on March 20 but mon ami, you wouldn’t know when all the salt trucks, snow ploughs and shovels make their presence, anticipating hopefully Father Winter’s swan song.

The meteorologist predicted 2-3 days of heavy snow and winds and then it’ll turn into flurries. Talk about transition weather! March is really a messy month but April is too. I usually notice that once May comes around, the weather starts to improve significantly.

Well, I gotta go ‘coz very soon, I’ll have to buckle up for the blizzard and afterwards, the shoveling begins!

Au revoir!

    Around this neck of the woods, it’s not over till the dogwoods near the town’s high school bloom, usually about April 19th, and this is California!

    • Yes! Each place has it’s own indicator that spring is just around the corner. I’m still scratching my head as to why Punxatawney Phil predicted an early spring?Anyway, my silver lining is after doing a lot of shoveling, i might acquire great arms like Michelle Obama–lol.
