Snow Circles

A

Aprilväder

B&W

There's a Swedish word that I really don't like. The word is Aprilväder. April Weather. It means that you can expect anything from Summer temperatures to snow storms in April. And we sure got a snow storm yesterday. 18 000 homes without electricity in the greater Stockholm area. Chaos in the traffic with accidents all over the place. I took a short walk and came home with a few snow circles. The letter A stood out on the manhole cover. The mirror at the commuter station is always worth another photo. Surprisingly I didn't spot any kids near this tyre swing.

No, not again!
We have 1mm green grass start here already and much hope that winter is behind. But who knows.

April can be like that for us in Toronto too but hopefully not this year! It is 19˚C at 8:23 pm tonight.

April here too is changeable, last week cold start, now warm - rain forecast. Luckily the ocean temp is still about 18 degrees. OK to swim.

Inspirational photos Steffe, but that April weather looks so severe. Stay warm- spring must reach you soon!

No worries Irina. The snow was gone on Sunday. That sounds nice Pat.

If it makes you feel any better, weather has a very similar pattern here in Rochester, NY. Today it was very warm...like summer...but it could snow tomorrow. Who knows?
