So last weekend we had thunderstorms and tornadoes go through, which, though normal enough for Tornado Alley, did seem to be a bit early in the season; and this weekend, we have snow! Snow in April, in Waco!?! It’s colder today than it was most days this past winter.

What’s weird is seeing the contrast between spring and winter: bluebonnets blanketed in snow; trees with their new growth of leaves covered in stark white; a carpet of white over the grass, except around trees where it’s a brilliant green.

These photos really don’t do it justice, but they were the best I could do at short notice (meaning, before the snow melted!).
