Old man winter

Good afternoon,
the weather yesterday was sunny, but with a cold wind. I put a comment on Bev's Blog "Bee Haven Acres" the other day. She had said that "you could feel and  taste the color green as well as see it" I told her that you could also hear it. We got rain late Monday night and the temperatures were in the mid 40's. I took Daisy out for a walk at 9:30 or so and the rain was still coming down. A nice easy, early spring rain and that's when I heard the color green! A lone spring peeper was calling for a mate. He was on the edge of one of the many water puddles in the yard and he kept calling all night.
Tuesday broke with sunny skies and temps in the low 50's, but night time temps are still mostly below the 30's Wednesday is my first day back to work and last night I had the Truck gate. This is where we check in Truck traffic into the trailer yard. The guard shack is all windows and I had a perfect view of a cold front coming in from the southwest, until the sun went down.
And it started snowing around 2100! A very lite snow that I drove Thu all the way home.
And this is what I woke up to this morning.

This is looking to the southeast across my side yard. It's still snowing at this point.

And this is looking across the road to the southeast.
Now I know that for all of you up north and out west, this is just a dusting. It is for us too. As I write this at 1400, Most of it is gone and the temperature is in the high 40's. But what is weird is the day before and the day after! Both of them were warm enough to hang cloths out on the line and have them dry. I know because I did that on Tuesday!
Go figure!
