I know, it snowed in Lower Normandy too a few days ago; I wrote a comment on a blog about "the winter of discontent" but this is getting ridiculous! Taste of years to come ?

Rebecca Jerdee said...

Yes...the scene is the same for us as we travel back to Iowa...Minnesota, Iowa, Kansas, etc....all covered in 11 inches of snow!!!! It's May 3. The earth's axis seems to have moved.

Ohno. Stay warm. Take care.

Your title for this post and then the picture are perfect. This year, down here in Ohio where we live, has been, up until this week, a miserable failure for weather forecasters. We have had cold, wet, or damp weather. Yesterday was nice outside but today should be even nicer. I like to get up in the morning and get cleaned up and dressed and then tie my shoes as the last step in facing the day and when I discover, at the super market, I am still wearing my house slippers, then I know I am either suffering from amnesia or having a bad dream. Our weather has been like that. I wake up expecting a nice, warm, spring-like day, only to walk outside in desperate need of a winter coat.

Here are some more for your viewing pleasure: http://tinyurl.com/d23khw8
The Twin Cities was spared but a large swath only 30 miles from here was hit pretty hard. Beautiful photos, but...

I must apologize. Sydney, Australia, has stolen your spring. It was 23 degrees celcius today. We are having the warmest autumn for 150 years.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Yikes! I think the midwest US got snow too. Mother nature is confused, but it makes for great photography!

Sylvia K said...

I love your title, Rune!! Wish I could send you some Seattle spring -- we actually have blue skies and no clouds and mild temps -- not always the case here even in May! Have a great weekend in spite of the snow and stay warm!!

Reader Wil said...

Wow! This is pretty amazing! And it is a lot of snow too! Everything is late. My Japanese cherrytree always starts blooming half April and this time it happens at the end of April.But snow?? No, fortunately the sun shines although we still have frost at night.
Well Rune, I wish you a great spring and enough warmth to be happy with!

Oh my -- it is happening in Norway too! Record snow storms are sweeping some of our lands right now. Something is unsettling Mother Earth. -- barbara

Sara said...

That looks very chilly. We are sweltering in a heat wave today here, so your photo is rather refreshing to me at the moment. Hope you get some warm sunshine soon.

HansHB said...

Herlig bilde, kjipt vær!
Heldigvis ikke dette været hos oss!

Irene said...

Himmel og hav, snakk om nedtur. Hadde jeg ikke sett nyhetene i kveld, ville jeg trodd du drev gjøn med oss!

Noen kan lage snømenn, mens andre plukker hvitveis. Jeg vet hva jeg aller helst vi gjøre!

God helg, Rune .... håper snøen forsvinner raskt!

Ouch. I just hear on the news that Colorado and parts of the Great Plains in the U.S. were getting their first May snow in over 30 years. It would make me pretty grumpy. One summer during college years, a buddy and I got a foot of snow on in our pup tent in the Colorado Rockies on June 11. We had to dig our way out. It was claustrophobic. I was grumpy. He was more philosophical. Damn him.

truels said...

Oh no, I'm happy it's not down here! It's bad enough, that we have had frost in the nights during this week. But luckily clear and sunny days, where the sun has heated the air up to two digit "hot" temperatures....

Jackie said...

I don't know how you feel about the weather ther, but I am also envious of the scene I see in this photo. It is beautiful! I love cold weather, and we don't get nearly enough here.

Barbara Martin said...

Oh, my! That's such a shock, but perfectly captured. Hopefully the plants haven't begun to bud or flower yet.

Birdman said...

Ya, but in 24 hours it's GONE!

Starnitesky said...

It must be stay at home day today, hope it doesn't stay too long.

EG CameraGirl said...

Hmmm! This just not right. Someone needs to talk very sternly to Mother Nature!

Ken Mac said...

Oohhh, you are probably not happy with this outcome? but I Love it!

Lew said...

Beautiful, but not quite what one wants in May!

imac said...

Gee wizz, please get rid of it in the next 2 months time please my friend

Odd weather seems to be everywhere ... luckily no snow for us ... except in pictures. The footsteps looping around the tree make me think of someone caught outside running inside to get warm.

Dina said...

I'd love to be able to take a picture like that, any month of any year.
Be patient . . .

lynnwiles said...

Poor you! Hope spring has gone on strong by now.

Wenche said...

Usj usj, hørte om uværet helt til Edinburgh ;0) Godt våren og sommeren er her nå ;0)

I påvente av en ny sommer-post har jeg gått bakover i bloggen din, og mens jeg sitter her og svetter i 30 grader, kjennes det deilig svalende å se på ditt vinterbilder. Her har du fanget den gjennomtrengende kulden på en vindblåst og kald vinterdag i en enkel og fin komposisjon. Veldig bra!
