Squalls #ThursdayTreeLove

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.

I hope.

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.

Join Parul from the blog Happiness and Food and other bloggers who love trees for our meetup every second and fourth Thursday of the month at #ThursdayTreeLove.


  1. No, I'm okay with no snow. We have rain today, and the kiddos are all wet. Sigh.

  2. We have a snowstorm tonite too .... and it's pretty & white and quiet out ... rejecting the chaos that was earlier today with all the news.

  3. I did not know about snow squalls.. sound quite terrible. The image clearly shows its power! Our spring is almost over here and we are staring a summer...

  4. I haven't heard about the squalls. Is that a storm? I will Google and find more about it. That scene without knowing about the squall looks beautiful to me. Hope you are well, Alana. Take care and stay safe. I hope to see you around on the 26th.

  5. I do love snow photos. And I thought I knew what snow squalls were, but obviously didn't - I had no idea of their unpredictability. So I hope you've had the last of them for this year.

  6. Its difficult to stay calm in an unpredictable situation... there is not much choice... we have to comfort ourselves and say.. all will be fine.. its only a matter of time.
