With the arrival of April tomorrow, the possibility of snow in Washington DC is over. So I thought. Imagine my surprise reading the headline today about Old Man Winter returns. Sounds crazy? Or an April Fools’ joke?
According to AccuWeather.com – a wintry mix will hit the northeast tonight and bringing with it slashing “temperatures by 30-50 degrees Fahrenheit.” As much as I wish it is only an April Fools’ joke, the weather satellite technology is pretty spot on with near term forecast.
Yes, like a bad dream, Old man Winter returns. And I can’t recall if this has ever happened before – a return to mid- February weather while cherry blossom all around the places.
In any event, I am, bracing myself to the fact that I will be sheltering indoor for next a couple of days. And if I have to shovel snow in April, so be it. There is always a first. Right?
Isn’t March supposed “goes out like a lamb?”
