The Cruelty Of April

There are simply moments in April (even May) during which you have to grab as many straws as you are able. The straws to which I make reference are those of spring artifacts of all kinds. Why?

Our Rosebud tree is showing signs of an amazing bloom, perhaps a week or so away.

Unsuspecting and meteorologically uninformed passers-by will likely be taken aback with the forecast snowfall in just a few days.

A sudden thunderstorm popped up making me think twice about running inside. I had the advantage of seeing the offending storm by calling up NEXRAD Doppler radar on my Tesla control monitor. I was able to wait 10 minutes before exiting the car.
