This was a real transition week for our weather and landscape. Last Sunday there was a 3 - 4 inch dumping of slushy snow, which did not do much for our psyche or mood! Today we started off our day with above freezing temperatures, the first 70 degree reading of 2011 and our first severe thunderstorm warnings and tornado watch! Wow! The snow yesterday was still deep enough to prohibit me from a hike through the woods, and today the rains have made the majority of the snow disappear.
Here is a selection of photos from the week. Many photos were taken during the late afternoon/evening, as that is when I usually get my walk in. Some were taken yesterday afternoon, in the gloom, and today in the mix of clouds, sun and storms.
