Remember how my crocuses lifted their little faces to the sun yesterday, soaking up the warmth of its rays?
Well, here are the poor little dears today--just a mere 24 hours later--pulling in their little petals and shivering all the way down to their little round bottoms--um, bulbs.
But fickle weather is to be expected during the last hurrahs of winter here in Western Washington. That's because we live in the convergence zone. The cold fronts coming down from Alaska/Canada and the warm winds coming up from California tend to get into a 'tug-o-war' right over Oregon and Washington during the month of March. It's hard to predict the outcome, and it's not uncomman to have snow, wind, chill, fog or just rain. Or rain with hail and thunderstorms. Or rain with sunbreaks. Or one whole day of sunshine like yesterday. Really? Nah! Yesterday was just a spring teaser!
And that's our weather report for today.
P.S. Don't forget daylight savings time starts tonight-so if your area makes the switch, don't forget to set your clocks one hour forward before you go to bed.
