That is not the sight I wanted to wake up to on April 16 in Syracuse, N.Y.
Not when just a day ago when I took a good, long look at this garden in our city neighborhood of Eastwood front yard, I was noting the yellow flowers of this forsythia that’s the cornerstone of the carefully loved, hourglass-shaped spot.
Not when just four days ago, my dear wife Karen and I spent the day appreciating five stops on the nearby Cayuga Lake Wine Trail, yielding beautiful views of stirring fields and yards like the one above.
Not when six days ago I was playing golf just up the road at Westvale, where the sight above one beautiful green included a waterfall in the woods from spring runoff. That’s melted snow finding its level, to those of you who live where you don’t see that.
And, I was wearing shorts.
At least the sun is shining right now. But it’s 22 degrees, says the TV weather guy. The high is expected to stop at 38.
Oh, spring. Let the pendulum swing the other way to stay, please and thank you.
Did you get snow this week?
