The Weather Outside

This morning, when I woke up, the sun was streaming in my windows and I thought that we were in for another beautiful spring day. I dozed off for about another half an hour and when I awoke, it looked like a different day entirely. The sky was almost black and the wind was blowing the trees about like long grass. Within about 5 minutes, rain was pouring from the sky and pounding on my roof. The rain stopped in about 2 minutes and there was a moment of calm. Then, before I knew it, I saw a wall of snow rushing through the woods on a strong gust of wind. For about 5 minutes, I could barely see out of my window through all of the snow swirling about. Then, almost as quickly as it had come, it was gone. I grabbed my camera and ran outside to capture a few images of winter's last throes toying with springtime. Enjoy the pictures (click on them for a larger version).

it's a japonica... the white flowered bush thing is a japonica. (we have 2 or 3 and my parents LOVE gardening)

Cool, thanks Sha'Uri. I love flowers and plants. It's fun to be living at my house right now because this is my first springtime there and all of these incredible things that I didn't plant are emerging and blooming.
