Impermanence

This morning I awoke to a half-inch (or so) of snow on the ground, and a
gentle-yet-constant fluttering of flakes from the sky:

Actual photo from today. Look familiar? Check out the April 17 blog post…

This afternoon all of the snow had vanished, and I drove home on completely dry roads and past lawns as green as Ireland.

This evening I ate dinner amid a small hail storm, with the pellets falling while the sun was also shining.

Today was a terrific reminder that if I don’t like the way things are, just wait –
they’ll change.

  1. Wow…drastic weather changes in a short time there! Kind of reminds me of Texas a little…..except not much snow here where I live.

      The weather here can change on a dime… which can be lovely, or infuriating. 🙂

      • In Texas, we always say, “If you don’t like the weather, wait a minute, it will change!” and now looking at all these other comments, apparently THIS is not something said in only ONE part of the world, it happens all over….How funny that the things we think are mainly just in our own area are actually much wider spread than we realized!

    Loved this post. I had a similar experience (minus the hail) a few years ago. A gentle wet snow had fallen overnight, and I ran outside before breakfast to take some beautiful pictures at the field near my house. Even caught a deer drinking from the stream. By the time I left for work, the snow was gone. Impermanence indeed.

      The midwest can be a lot like the northeast, weather temperment-wise. Sunny, then rainy, then cold, then hot… I once heard a ‘joke’ about living in the midwest along the lines of, “…you wear a coat in the morning and shorts in the afternoon…” 🙂

    Here in Nova Scotia, we say “if you don’t like the weather, drive 15 miles down the road – it will be different”. Your day was a good reminder of ‘this too will pass!”
