The snow is mostly melted now; the Daffodil buds are just about ready to open. However, Spring is the most unpredictable season in these mountains. These clouds are the outriders of a storm that is supposed to dump a half foot of snow on us tonight and as fast as the barometer is falling, I think the weatherman may be right this time.
I find Spring to be a lot like life. The sky is blue, the sun is shining and there are even a few flowers around for a bonus. Then, WHAM! A storm hits before you can blink twice. There are some storms you can prepare for, but some take you completely by surprise and there's nothing you can do but pull up the hood of your coat, tuck your head down and keep on going. And it helps to remember, if you can, that eventually the storm will pass and the sun will shine on you again, even if the storm has left the landscape of your life altered forever.
