Most of the time I love living in Seattle. Spring, however, can be a bit of a weather battle. Over the last week we've had sunshine and warm temps, two inches of hail, wind, drenching rain, and sunshine and cold temps.
Battle I. Last Thursday was a beautiful spring day. My tulips opened up and enjoyed the warm sunshine.
Battle II. On Saturday a cold front came through bringing a hail storm to the lowlands. Our mountains got over two feet of snow, something that hadn't happened all winter long.
Battle III. This was followed by wind and drenching rains on Monday. I'm pretty sure my daffodils drowned.
Battle IV. On Wednesday the sun tried to gain the upper hand again. Even though it looked lovely, the temperatures were still chilly.
Eventually sunshine and warmth will win the war. I just wish it would happen sooner than later - there's yard work to be done and spring clothes to be worn.
What's spring like where you live?
