Friday, April 1st. And the snows came. And came. Nature itself told us this day wouldn't be a joke.
There's an old, very old but usually accurate saying, "Red Skies in the morning, sailors take warning; red skies at night, sailors' delight." This is what morning looked like yesterday and skies that red tell us we're in for a storm. Yesterday's dawn didn't lie.
Today, we woke up to snow. Lots of it.
Hard to believe that just yesterday, nary a flake of snow could be seen in our yard.
And before it ends later today, we could have six inches or more on the ground.
April 1st, 2011. This is no joke!
(Edited 6:30 Friday Evening: Storm pulled out of Greater Portland area shortly after noon, but some rain or snow showers probably will linger through the night.)
