April in Minnesota, anything could happen...

One thing fun about April here in Minnesota is how many varieties of weather we can have. A couple of weeks ago we had a very rainy Sunday complete with thunder. We have had some very warm weather where it basically feels like summer and then we have our snowstorms. This past weekend we got 8 inches of snow but some years it has been a lot more than that. The weather can change from day to day.

Or...

from hour to hour or minute to minute, like today. This morning I think we had a few flurries early on and then the sun came out and before lunch the boys were actually out playing baseball in the yard. Then a bit later it was snowing, then sunshiny again, then raining, then snowing again- huge flakes that Mara thought looked like little white fairies floating down, then it was sunshiny again and then the sleet came down fast and heavy. I couldn't keep track of quite all the changes that happened. Though we were feeling ready for "Spring" (read warm) weather we sure had fun watching to see what would come down next today!

We got 10 cm on Wednesday! We had warm weather (just jackets!) the week before. Friday we were biking. Today was freezing rain, then snow, then rain! Monday is supposed to be warm again! So I know how you feel. Its that way all the time here too...my girls get confused "I thought it was spring mommmy" but then I tell them its winter time weather in spring! :)

It is fun to hear about all the varieties of weather that God is sending all over the place.

This week it is Spring again and my daffodils are blooming!!
