This is what the first day of spring looked like around here!
Even though it was snowing, Luke and I still got out for our walk.
I wasn’t thrilled, but we had skipped an earlier day in the week when it was snowing and quite cold. Luke had a long walk the previous day with his Dad (on days I have to go out for work and Dad walks him, it always seems to be nice out!), but I don’t like having to skip more than one of ours a week if I can help it. Our walk was delayed a bit because of a work thing I had to do, so by the time we got out it was already above freezing. There was only about an inch of snow on the ground, but in some places it was quite muddy underneath and I almost slipped and fell more than once!
As we came back up towards the house, we saw blue sky, and the sun even almost came out!
I decided to extend our walk and we went past the house and down another trail. Luke got to do some of his “freestyle” walking, until snow started to melt off the trees and dumped down the back of my coat! We headed back to the regular trails then.
The rest of the day stayed cloudy, but the temperature hovered around 40 degrees so much of the snow melted. While the farm birds spent most of the morning hiding inside the coop, barn, and garage, by afternoon they were venturing out and about happily.
Did it snow on your first day of spring?
