I know that the expression “In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb” usually only applies to the month of March- but I feel that it’s a fitting description for April, as well- especially this past weekend. As if Mother Nature’s sense of humor wasn’t already a bit odd- she went ahead and dumped some snow on us here in New England. In my neck of the woods, it was little more than a light dusting that washed away with the rain that followed- but in other parts of Massachusetts- it had to be shoveled.
And, in case quarantine has you getting your days/weeks/months blurred together (it’s happening to us all, no worries)– we’re nearly in May.
Having been born and raised in New England, I’m used to the weather being unpredictable at best- and I didn’t let it stop me from taking my weekly drive to keep my car running smoothly and my sanity intact. This past weekend’s outing saw me heading North for a change- where I ended up winding through the snow-covered mountains and stopping in Woodford, Vermont.
Whether it was the snow or the ongoing pandemic, or maybe a mix of both- I appeared to be the only one around- which was nice since I felt safe exiting my car to snap a few photos and get some fresh air. I found a spot by Red Mill Pond (thank you, Google!) that had the perfect view.
And I’m so accustomed to New England weather that I know we’ll more than likely be having tornado warnings again within a few weeks. It comes with the seasons and with living in one of the more beautiful and picturesque parts of the country. You have to take the bad with the good.
