We had a lot of rain last night. It was needed. The temperatures slowly dropped as the day progressed. The pellet stove was doing it job keeping us warm.
I woke around 6:15 AM. All was calm. Suddenly I heard a loud 'WHUMP" outside. It was warm in bed, the wife was asleep. I did not want to investigate.
A few minutes later I heard another "WHUMP". This time, it seemed to come from the front of the house.
What was it? Someone slamming a car door? Nah. We can't hear the neighbors.
I got out of bed and looked outside.
There was just a few inches. It was warming up outside. The WHUMP noise was the snow sliding off the metal roof onto the ground.
There were school delays and closing nearby!
As I came home from work, it was still raining. There was a little snow mixed in.
The creek came up some. It is running dirty brown. It is cold and angry.
Just think - we were in the 80's last week. This is why we don't plant our garden until Memorial Day around here.
