I would have liked to tell You how the sun was shining today. How the birds were singing and how the sky was filled with cranes, swans and geese. But I can´t. What I can tell You is how I woke up seeing how it snowed outside 04:45 this morning and how it sounded when the wind howled ouside my cottage.

My dogs were happy though, they love cold weather and snow and because of all snow they were totally clean when I came home :-) Nothing bad that doesn´t make something good happen as we say here in Sweden.

I took this picture on a break at work early this morning. It continued to snow almost all day.

Now it has started to rain outside and already tomorrow it will become warmer, so all snow is surly gone tomorrow. This is what we call April weather so i hope that we can get May weather now when April soon is here :-)

There once was a cobbler in souther Sweden that every spring closed his shoemaking shop and then he put up a sign that said: “Closed between bird cherry and lilac bloom” and I think that he probably had his vacation at the best time of the year. Of course I like to have vacation during summer when it´s to hot to work. I work just beside a hughe owen so when summer comes I have to drink up to eight litres (about 2,1 US gallons or 1,8 UK gallons) of water not to get dehydrated. But to be honest, late April and May is the best months of the year when everything is new and fresh.

But it had started to melt when I came home even if it continued to snow now and again all afternoon.
Joan Rivers is a real funny woman I can say. I just seen a “Doctors” show on TV and she made me laughe all the time :-) The show was about plastic surgery today and usually I don´t think that is so funny :-)
I hope You all have better weather than I do, so have a nice Friday now!

My dogs loves it so who can be mad about the snow then?

Joan Rivers is funny. There have been times I didn't think she was..but those are few. She pokes fun at herself..and it takes a very secure person to do that. Boy, snow does hang on in some parts of the world! I know that snow is bothersome, Christer, but I love it's quiet beauty too. I guess there can be enough of a good thing though..such as snow. :)
Take care and keep warm.

Hi Christer!

Did you send snow our way?!!!

We are hunkering down for a good 'ole fashioned Kansas spring blizzard! Ssome of our biggest snowstorms occur during the fall and spring months when warm air from the Gulf of Mexico collides with cold air from the Arctic/Canada!)

We are expecting anywhere from 6-12inches (depending on what part of Kansas one resides in). My kids are soooo very excited. We had a fairly dry winter in Kansas City so this snowstorm is a good thing from mother nature.

Your pics are beautiful as usual!

Take care,

Hi Mona!
I have only seen Joan Rivers a few times and then I have laughed a lot. But she´s not that known here in Sweden. But as You say, it does take a secure person the make fun of her/him self.

Snow is beautiful, but I prefere it in winter, now everything just becomes wet and muddy because of it. But this weather is common at spring here and can be expected through all of April too :-)

Hi Valerie!
No, this snow went straight up to the north pole I think, because it came straight from the south. So we are not responisble for Your snowstorm :-) :-)

It´s been a rather warm and wet winter here in Sweden, so more water isn´t what we need :-) Now I´m hoping for warm May weather already in April :-)
