Hello Spring (I Think)

We had a blast in Nashville, but that's not the story of the day. On the way home we drove over 5.5 hours. The temperature started out at 50 and slowly dropped. We went from clouds to rain to sleet to snow. By the time we got home, it would have been easier to get around on a sled.

Check it out:

Yes, I know. They're sideways. This is apparently what happens when I email photos to the computer from my iPhone. Hopefully I'll figure out a fix later.

Anyway, though you may have to tilt your head like a parrot to see them, here's how things look now and it's still coming down strong. Yikes! Looks like this will be our biggest snowfall of the year (possibly up to 12 inches).

Did someone say Spring has arrived????

EDITED 3/25/13

Okay, all you iPhone users...just found out what I thought was very good information. Apparently, the iPhone camera is meant to be held in LANDSCAPE (camera button on the right) orientation rather than PORTRAIT (camera button on the bottom) orientation. When held in the "correct" position, your photos will email properly.


Hope you other iPhone users find this tip helpful!

WELCOME HOME..... Glad that you had a good time... BUTT what kind of Welcome did Mother UN Natural have planned fur you. THAT is more like a cruel April Fool's Joke gone REALLY WRONG.
WE have a little snow here..butt may get MORE... not as much as YOU will though. THIS is just NOT RIGHT.

The photos are appropriate because spring in Missouri has gone sideways.

I think Spring got stuck in a snow bank and that is why it is late. We should get a team together to pull it out.

If this is Spring, Dog help us!
It is very pretty though.

Spring is nothing but a rumor, so far!

The pictures are pretty. But it doesn't look like spring.

Hope you had a great trip. It is cold over here too and they say it will continue for a few more weeks. Yikes we need some sun and warm weather now. Have a marvelous Monday.
Best wishes Molly

Hi Pat, love your blog! Great pics! And do agree with Donna about the sideways weather.

Looks like our neck of the woods. Three days of snow and today they are predicting blizzard conditions! we expect another foot of snow in the next 12 hours. Wish I could get off work early today...and how about a snow day tomorrow???

Wow... That 2nd to the last picture was breath taking. Great shot.

I just had to laugh at that iPhone tip. LOL. Sounds complicated. Thanks for sharing.

PS No more huggies and cheese from now on.

Glad you're home safe! And you called it---I did turn my head like a parrot to see the photos. LOL AND, thanks for the clue-in on the way to hold the iPhone to take pics. I had the same issue and didn't know why.
