Just when we were skating into Spring
(mild winter, warm sunny February)
Mother Nature handed us a sudden storm.
Weather predictions call for "wet snow"
for the morning hours, "not a problem."
4-inches of snow, already on the ground,
highways closed, driving winds,
4 more inches of snow forecast.
(The city was completely shut down.)
It was a wet "big flake" snow.
Especially fierce winds!
Unexpected, to be sure.
(Photographers love these moments.)
