Spring is almost here. Earlier this week, it was in the low 70's (about 21 C) which is quite warm for the first week of March.
But just a few days before, this was the scene.
This is a snow squall. I live on the edge of snow squall country in upstate New York - where squalls can be so fierce they can cause massive traffic accidents. They can come on in seconds, with no warning, and absolutely no visibility for the driver. The most the weather bureaus can do is issue a warning for possibilities of squalls. They can't predict where or when.
This one was mild. It barely made the trees look foggy and we only received a dusting of snow.
I know my friends in milder climes wanted to see snow one more time. As for me, I'm done with snow.
But we in the United States are facing other squalls, as are many others in our world. It's hard to stay calm, but we must. Again, we have the forecast but we can't predict where and when. We must reject chaos. We must allow the beauty of this world to help us survive the coming weeks.
