Not so unusual

This year's late snow is not as unusual as we might think.
These are the March 1906 entries from The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady in which Edith Holden describes heavy snowfall in the middle of the month.

Aren't grape hyacinths just beautiful, so delicate and pretty.
It has snowed here this morning but now has turned to rain.

On the day you wrote that it was 40 degrees here, with a firestorm that blew away almost 70 homes and businesses on the south coast. And this is supposed to be spring for you (or near enough thereto, subject to regional definitions), and autumn for us. I think I'd rather have the snow.

seems the grape hyacinths are out though...tough it out Mairead, as winter will soon fade away..
