Spring...Exit Stage Left


It appears that Mother Nature told Spring to "Exit Stage Left"...
Last night and this morning it was "Cue the wind"...
110 km wind gusts thank you very much
{that's about 70 mi per hour for non-metric friends}
Not enough?
Ok snow...let it rip!

sigh...

I sit at my computer listening to the wind whipping through the trees, trying to ignore the white stuff pinging against the window, thinking about partaking in a second cup of tea, my boys still sleeping, Banjo curled up beside me...

hmmm...

Life still looks pretty sunny here in Southwest Saskatchewan ~ no matter the weather outside!

Hope all is well with you ~ warmest wishes for a beautiful weekend! Even if the weather is not agreeable! :)

Love your attitude!
We had heavy rainstorms all day yesterday and a Tornado warning last night while I was still at work. Looks good out there so far. Just remember, you will be enjoying the lovely northern summer weather in a few months, while I am being boiled alive down here in the south.
Enjoy your morning.

Ow Catherine, I'm sorry to read about the snow {again}. There is a lot of sun in your heart for sure, and that's what counts! The weather will follow as soon as the time is right.

Have a great weekend! xo

Spring always comes in like that first dip of your toes into the lake--slowly, tentatively, and then takes a step back, unfortunately. At least at this point, there are more nice days than bad ones, right? And I hate the wind--it can do so much damage that it always scares me.

I hope it's just a tease and the really awesome Spring weather starts for you! Have a good weekend!

A warm hug and wish you a lovely weekend

Our warm weather took the weekend off here too, I've even closed the windows that I had open. I hope the spring warmth returns for both of us!! Enjoy your weekend!!

Well Catherine, I guess that living in Canada is quite different from living in Tennessee... We have had some strong winds --but only about 30 mph... AND--it's cool here, but in the 40's. That's cool enough for me... I'd have a hard time getting used to cold cold temps and snow like you are having ---in APRIL....

BUT--when you are enjoying MILD weather in June and July, we'll probably be hotter than hot. Don't like that either. SO---guess it's all relative, huh?????

Have a good day up there. Sounds like you need to cuddle up with a good book and Banjo today.
Hugs,
Betsy

Brian said...

I hope that somehow you have a warm and wonderful weekend...we all need to get together and email spring to you!

Connie said...

Let's cross our fingers that Spring will return very soon...but regardless..we'll have an awesome weekend anyway. :)

BeadedTail said...

That's pretty windy but hopefully it blows on by quickly and your Spring weather returns soon!

Luiza said...

Oh no!!!! No more snow!!!!!!
When will it end???

However, I like the way you think positive!!! Keep it up!
You´ll see , everything will get better outside as well =).

Have a lovely weekend!

Maybe you could decide to take up skiing. If you're anything like me, it wont snow again for three years:P

rachel said...

Well, it was warm and sunny all day here in Newcastle, NE England. Lovely.... Except that there's always a risk that we may just have had our summer.

Sending warm spring sun to you up there! Hang in there!!!!

Holy criminey! 110 mph gusts!

Actually your post made me think about the strangely satisfying moments we have sometimes. Like waking to the sounds of weather raging outside, curled safely in my soft, warm bed with the kits beside me... and counting my blessings.

Anya said...

I just returned from a beautiful 10 days of Spring, back to snow flurries! Yuck!

Vicki's Bit-o-earth said...

Oh no! Hang onto your hat... with that kind of gale! I'd tell you to come-on over, but we have rain and wind too! Still... wind and snow or not, it sound cozy at your house. Here's to wishing you some sunshine soon! (:
