Maybe not so much 'sprung' as 'poured' or 'enveloped'.
Depending on which part of Newfoundland and Labrador you live.
Or what time of day it is today.
Mother Nature! You go girl!
Freezing rain, snow, rain, ice pellets and fog.
And 'freezing fog'. Yes, it is a thing. Welcome to The Rock!
One of the few places on earth where you can get freezing fog.
And it too can go sideways, like the rest of the precipitation we generate here.
Every place has its charm- ours is sideways precipitation.
Although the photo to the right reveals the current state of affairs with the precipitation on the Avalon Peninsula, I added a few snaps from our last snow storm. Much prettier!
Maybe they will inspire Mother Nature to give up on this sideways freezing/pouring/fogging stuff she is so fond of here, and switch over to the enveloping, fluffy stuff that the rest of the Island is getting?
I can hear the groaning from here; a contentious issue for sure, but I see a few more charms in that fluffy stuff when compared to the sideways freezing rain, despite the fact that it is more work.
I certainly wouldn't go so far as to hope Mother Nature will bless us with sunshine and blooming flowers and the like. It is only March after all! There are another 3 months of 'misery' before we really see spring. In June. For 2 days. Sigh.
