So where's the snow?

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

Crazy weather

It’s not unusual to have a late fall of snow in April, but this year must be the wors and the lastest!  We’ve had several days of a really cold wind and snow showers, which stayed in the air, but the mountains got a covering and even Salzburg! Apparently it came over the UK from Iceland to us. And this morning we woke up to it laying, and as I write at midday we’ve had 25cm!

Yesterday it was all green and the cherries were blossoming everywhere, but the flowers were browning in the freezing wind. So I guess precious few cherries this year! Dave and I have covered all the plants in the greenhouse,so glad we hadn’t planted anything out!  We were quite smug too that we hadn’t yet taken the winter tyres off the car, meaning Dave was the only one to drive up the steep road to the Burg for work!  I went for a walk with Elke and her son, and we got frozen and covered in snow as it waited for the main tip when we were at the furthest point away. But the dogs loved it. Poor little Robert was fed up and even tried to get his Dad to come and pick him up!

I was so glad that I’ve still got some bird food and could fill the table up, so many Chaffinches, bullfinches

And it’s then going to freeze tonight. Sooner or later I expect Linda will be out with the snow shovel, I’m keeping below the parapet, it’ll be gone in a few day-won’t it?????

  1. Beautiful scenery, beautiful images. But oh that it has snowed so much. Facing the snow there today, or have it slapped away. Yes, it’s still April, so will see if I will get any more snow here, there is little time left in April yet 🙂
