Spring Awakening

People always say that if you don't like the weather in St. Louis, stick around because it will change. We have certainly seen that to extreme this week. We experienced a 50 degree change in the weather from Tuesday to Wednesday. Sadly, it was a downward turn in the weather. I always hate it when we get so warm this early in the year as it messes up the spring plants. The crocuses are blooming, as are some magnolias and daffodils. A huge temperature change can freeze the delicate buds and blooms, leading to a far less colorful spring down the road. Hopefully, these colder days won't last too long.

You're absolutely right! I'll tell you though, St. Louis is still not as bad as Arkansas.
But, we, too, had trees and flowers blooming, but the temps dropped off and, now, we're getting freezing rain, sleet and snow.
Gotta love it!
