Weather Whiplash

We had falling snow 2 weeks ago.
Yesterday it was 90 degrees.
Today I am wearing a wool sweater and it's looking like rain.
However, despite these crazy mood swings that Mother Nature is working through, spring has finally arrived.


How soul-stirring to see green and bright flowers again.
I had this thought yesterday that Winter is a little like childbirth.
It feels like it will never end while its happening, it's painful, it's messy, but when it's over you have something beautiful and you can't really remember the details of how you got there.

So very true Jess. When I started reading your post and you were talking about the swinging back and forth my thought was it was like Mother Nature was pregnant, or menopausal. :)
