About once a winter we see something in the way of frozen precipitation. This winter (2014-2015) we hadn’t seen anything yet, and with the daffodils blooming it seemed as though our chances were slim.
Yesterday the high was 82 and today we have barely nudged above freezing (it’s currently 29 in the middle of the day). A more than 50 degree difference in the space of much less than 24 hours is quite extreme!
This morning the drizzle finally changed to a wintry mix and it’s been going on for about 3 hours now. The children were quite excited.
