Woodstock - Between Winter and Spring

A few days ago I was going to rub it in on you snow birds still fighting the ice and powder.  It was like a spring day and the weather was beautiful.  The proof was the Bradford Pear tree in the front yard.

         (Yes, that is a for sale sign - its been there for three years - my timing sucks).

But that night a sever thunder and wind storm came through bringing some winter cold with it. Trees were down (I was spared), some flooding and roof damage all over the county. The tornado sirens were wailing and I was standing in the carport watching the show. I love storms.

Since then the weather has been typical Georgia weather. If you don’t like it, wait a few minutes…it will change.

Yesterday was a mild 65 degrees with a slight breeze. Today, rain, wind, and 45 degrees. Not that cold, but it's a damp cold. That is the worst kind. Sorta of like a mother-in-law cold…you can stand it, but you are not comfortable with it.

At anyrain, the Bradford is getting it’s fill of water.

And for no particular reason, this is the view from my driveway across the valley to the Kroger shopping center (during the spring like day.)

And seeing what it’s like in other parts of the country, I can’t complain.

Y’all have a great day, ya hear?

And y'all come back anytime, bless your hearts.

The weather here in GA is truly unlike anything I have ever seen. Still a little scared when I hear the tornado sirens go off.... but I have been LOVING the spring like weather while my friends and family back home are stuck freezing!
