Yesterday, winter seemed so far away
Everyone on the internets was talking about snow yesterday but here in the little city it was another gorgeous afternoon. Took a long walk through town. It's spooky how empty this little city is, even the little college feels like it's still on break. I finally walked around campus. Just a handful of students to be seen. But this tree was already busting out in bloom. (Pictures look better if you click on them to embiggen)
And I'm not sure what these shrubs are. They resemble forsythia but I doubt they're related, although they both are the earliest bloomers around these parts.
Have a feeling these guys are going to be sorry they jumped the gun on blooming though. Weatherman is predicting up to a foot or so of snow for us this weekend. That would be really weird. Haven't seen that big a snowfall since I moved to the south. Guess I should go to the store and stock up on essentials. That much snow could shut down the city for a couple of weeks.
