Not Quite Yet

Winter’s stubborn touch, like the whipping tail of a dragon that catches the brave knight unaware as the dragon retreats from battle, is still with us here in Southern Michigan.

We went from several days of mild, pleasant, sunny weather to a couple days of frigid 30s and windy, with nights in the 20s. Yesterday it even snowed a bit (that just ain’t right…). Fortunately, the forecast ahead looks promising starting with tomorrow’s high in the 60s.

Historically, this is no surprise to anyone who’s lived here long enough. April and May, despite the promise of spring, are not immune from winter’s last gasp.

As proof, check out this chart of significant historical April snowfall of 2″ or more for Detroit, Michigan (about an hour east of me):
