Old Man Winter Keeps Returning To National Hill!

It may be the middle of April, but, today, it didn’t feel like it at all.  It also didn’t look like the middle of April outdoors.  Just a few days ago, we had a little taste of summer here on National Hill … and, sadly, today, we had another taste of Winter here on National Hill.  Old Man Winter gave us a break over the weekend, but, sadly, he came back here yesterday … and he’s still on National Hill today.  Hopefully, Old Man Winter will be able to leave National Hill tomorrow … and, hopefully, he can stay away from National Hill for a few months or so.  My fingers are crossed.  Enjoy your day, even though it’s cold outside!

The snow is slowly melting away!

Now, last week, as we were starting the 2018 Spring season, we actually got several inches of snow!  Over the past few days or so, the snow has been melting slowly, but surely here on National Hill.

I was actually walking outdoors this afternoon … and I noticed that the people who live on Cuddy Hill don’t have any snow on the ground while we still have a lot of snow at our house.  In fact, a few houses on National Hill still have snow on their properties as well.

Today, I’d like to show you the snow that is still at our house, just days after we got a snow storm.

There is still some snow in our backyard. I’m pointing to it in this photo.
There is a lot of snow near our house! There’s also snow on the chairs that are in our backyard.

As you can see here, while many other people in our little town have almost no snow on our properties, we have a lot of snow on our property, but, of course, it will all be gone soon.  Hopefully, the snow won’t return to National Hill for a while.

The seasons got mixed up this week!

Yesterday afternoon, at 12:15, Spring started for real.  So far, it hasn’t felt like Spring, but, of course, it will eventually feel like it again.  On Monday, while it was still Winter, it sort of felt like Spring.  I was able to walk outdoors a few times on that day.  Since Spring started yesterday afternoon, it has felt like Winter.  In fact, just before I went to bed last night, it started to snow outside … and, whenever I woke up early this morning, I saw a lot of snow near our house.

Let me put it this way, just in case I may have confused you guys.  On Monday, we were saying good-bye to Winter … and it felt like Spring outside.  Then, yesterday, we said hello to Spring … and it actually felt like Winter outside.  Of course, as you know, anything can happen while we go outdoors.  You never know which season it will be.

Some of these top blog posts are full of snow!

We were supposed to have a snow storm here at our house today, but whenever I looked outside of my window this morning, I was able to see a lot of grass near our house.  We didn’t get the snow storm that we were supposed to get today, but we did get some snow today.

Today, I’d like to make it the theme of this blog post by telling you about some of my top snow-related blog posts ever.

Since we didn’t get a lot of snow today, I just figured that I would let you guys some of my top snow-related blog posts from the past 2 1/2 years.  Most of them are about the snow-covered mountains that we had in our backyard two years ago.

Old Man Winter has returned to our property!

On February 9, 2017, Old Man Winter returned to our property.

This Winter, we haven’t been able to see the snow for long periods of time … and, this morning, Old Man Winter was able to give us some snow.  Our property is once again covered with snow … and in just about two or three days, it will disappear as quickly as it arrived.

Winter doesn’t end until next month, so maybe Old Man Winter will come back to our property again sometime soon.

Joseph is taking a selfie in the cold air!

On December 11, 2016, I took a selfie while I was standing outdoors in the cold air.

Now, today, the weather outside is very cold … and it’s too cold for me to go outdoors.

On Sunday, the weather was pretty cold outside … and there was some snow on the ground also.  Also, I was able to take a selfie while I was standing outside in the cold air.

Old Man Winter came early this year.  I’m ready to go through the upcoming Winter season!

Old Man Winter came early this year!

On December 14, 2016, I saw a lot of snow on National Hill. Old Man Winter came to our house early this year.

Winter starts in just one week … and it actually feels like it today.  It’s cold outside … and there’s a lot of snow at our house.  You almost can’t see the grass here.  Old Man Winter came to our neighborhood early this year … and he will be here for quite a while.

Our snow-covered property

Winter doesn’t officially start for about one more month, but over the weekend, it certainly felt like it.  Old Man Winter usually makes his first appearance on National Hill at some point in the middle of November … and that was the case again this year.

Yesterday morning, as I was looking outside of my windows, I saw a little bit of snow on our property.  There was snow on our stairs, there was snow on our front porch and there was also snow in our backyard.

On November 20, 2016, there was snow on our stairs.
On November 20, 2016, there was snow on our front lawn.
On November 20, 2016, there was snow in our backyard. Most of it was actually on our deck.

Old Man Winter gave us a little bit of everything over the weekend … and he will be making a few appearances on National Hill over the next few weeks or so.

What season is this again?

In a previous blog post, I said that the 2016 Winter season didn’t feel like it too much.  We did see cold temperatures and we did see some snow on the ground this Winter, but we wouldn’t actually see both of those things for long periods of time during this past Winter.  Sometimes, it was warm outside and it actually felt like Spring.

Well, when Spring began for real on Sunday, it didn’t feel like it at all!  The temperatures were somewhat cold … and we did see a little bit of snow on the ground.  Obviously, Old Man Winter just had to ruin our fun on the First Day of Spring.  Other than that, it was still a fantastic day, in my opinion.

So, now that Spring is here, hopefully it will feel like Spring for real this time!
