About Carol A. Hand

What matters are not the titles I’ve held or university degrees I earned or the size of a house or bank account. It’s really what I’ve learned from ordinary people like me whom I’ve met along the way. They taught me to live with gratitude and give thanks for each new day.

    Glad I don’t live in the arctic!;-)

    We had a little over one week of winter in December. Since then, 40s, 50s. 60s and even 70s, with thunderstorms, some severe. Cloudy and overcast most of the time, which is normal, but basically a Nashville winter in the middle of Ohio.

    We normally average 27 inches of snow, but this year I doubt we even have ten inches. And March looks like Spring is here to stay.

    And all I can say is, Yes! Yes! Yes! Thank you, chemtrails!;-)

    I hate winter!

    Snow is our “new normal” here in Vancouver area too…I wonder what the birds are doing, as their food freezes or just disappears under the snow…I have asked my trees at home and my herbs, they answer: “let’s see, let’s see…”

    Funny old earth. There you are, in the “north country” and I’m way north of you, yet that scene you posted reminds of my north country which was northern Canada (Alberta). Although we’ve had lots of unwanted snow here in the balmy Fraser Valley of south west British Columbia, (including 4 inches yesterday in Chilliwack!) normally it’s springtime now, with buds bursting, flowers opening, birds singing and flitting over nesting sites. Darn global warming anyways… 🙂 We want our springy weather back! I see Sylvia TIC posted a similar comment.

    No snow here, just a flurry of sleet on a couple of days and lots of wind and rain. We don’t seem to get proper winters anymore. February had been very grey, cold and wet but no snow. The daffodils are opening out and the crocuses are in full bloom, it is lovely to have some colour back in the garden.

    • It’s fascinating to hear what it’s like in other parts of the world, Chris. There’s not much we can do about changing weather in the short-term, and I’m grateful that you focused on the upside by sharing such beautiful spring images! ❤

    Good Morning to you, Carol! I’m impressed with all that snow…I’d forgotten it’s still winter as the trees are in bud including the honeysuckle and we’ve had some Spring warmth. Enjoy the beauty of this winter landscape.

  11. The snow looks so pretty especially against the blue of your house. Cool and rainy here in Portlandia…
