So where's the snow?

Muddling through in Austria, God and life, teaching and gardening plus the occasional cow

Spring Bounces On

Apparently a lot of the bad weather earlier last week was due to Hurricane Niklaus, and we got off lightly due to the protection of the mountains at Obertauern.

Early evening on Maunday Thursday, just as we thought the rain was easing off a sudden storm came hurtling up the valley and it snowed like it hasn’t done all winter. We woke up to about six inches, much to a certain puppy’s delight! The skies cleared and it began to thaw in the warmish sunshine, we even went for a walk along the river.

Slightly wonky Easter fire at Tamsweg. I wonder if they will be able to light them?

Then blow me down, if it didn’t begin snowing again on Easter Saturday, but just rainy sleet  all day. Easter Sunday was cold with snow showers, and we walked in the woods in deep snow, of course for Swingle’s playtime. Monday it did the same, snowed over on to Tuesday BUT they say this is the last, it may get to +20 by the end of the week- I’m trying not to get too excited!
