Snow !

We woke up this morning to a dusting of snow! This is unusual for late March but not unheard of. I remember many times growing up that we would have a light dusting of snow over the crocus blooms scattered in the yard.
DH is glad - he was hoping it would snow enough to be considered accumulation so he can mark it on his 'weather records'. He records the high/low temps and the percipitation every day and each month charts the average high/low temps and total precip. He also charts these yearly.
While this is not the 'latest' snowfall he has recorded (April 6, 1996 holds that record) he was still excited to have a late March date.
This is looking toward the east from our back door - the trees all belong to neighbors. To the right you can see one of their Bradford pear trees which is almost bloomed out and full of leaves. In the curve of our flower bed is a flowering plum that is full of buds.

This is looking out to the southwest and you can see in the background a couple trees in bloom. I know one is a tulip tree but not sure what the white one is - but it a pretty view in the spring.

Looks like you had just a tad more than we did. By the time we left church, it was all gone.
