If You Don’t Like The Weather…

For years, I’ve heard the saying: “If you don’t like the weather in Virginia, just stick around for a little while:  it will change.”

Case in point: last week, we had a couple of days of record-breaking high temperatures.  Flowers are confused: some folks even spotted irises in bloom.  In late December.

But, yesterday was quite a different story.  In our area of southeast Virginia, we had snow flurries, quite heavy at times.  And high temperatures struggled to make it out of the twenties. I don’t even want to think about the wind chill.

Two hours south of us in the Outer Banks, the snow was a somewhat bigger deal. Schools were open on a two-hour delay yesterday morning. Someone shared this photo on Facebook. This is a fishing pier in Nags Head, N.C.  It looks like a scene from the northeast part of the country.

Other than snowflakes, we just had some pretty awesome clouds.

Today, we’re expecting sunshine and temps in the upper forties.  But we know how fickle the weather is, so we’ll just stick around for awhile to see what changes there will be.

And how’s your weather?
