Timing is Everything

We get used to the Nor'easters that come along with living on the New England coast, but the timing of this newest storm... April Fools Day!

I am suppose to be on a flight heading to Rome (then the Tuscany region of Italy) this Friday, flight take-off time happens to be at the peak of the storm being forecasted here in Boston. I took a photograph when I was walking my dog this afternoon, signs of spring? What a tease! We could get up to 6 inches of snow (hopefully not on the coast) and definitely none of this snow will last long because it is springtime, right? I do remember the April fools day storm of 1997 when we took a family trip for the "weekend", a visit to NYC that became the 5 day visit, kind of like the Gilligan's Island theme song...

Spring Crocuses, 3/30/11


  1. Hope there are no delays with your flight, Robin. We're prone to snow in April too, at least occasionally. We've been in the freezing temps zone again for the past week or so.

  2. Rabbit, rabbit...

    Everything I see is beautiful!

  3. You just made me appreciate the desert even more. Our April Fools will end up in the low 90's. Aaahhhh.... Heat! Good luck with your travel plans. I wish you Godspeed...


  4. I hope your plans won't get disrupted. Have a great trip!
