Although we didn't receive any snow here in the Keweenaw, a bit farther south into areas of Wisconsin, the cold weekend weather shrouded the green with white. Apparently Peggy Riemer anticipated the transformation, taking the upper shot Saturday, and returning to the same spot yesterday.

Just now hearing the forecast, sounds like this sugar coating should probably disappear today.

Can we get some pictures of the Rockland Methodist Church and some memories about it. That church burned to the ground last week. I grew up only 15 miles away but do not remember being in the church. But I do remember the steeple and white church each of the hundreds of times I drove by.

What a difference a day makes. Both pictures are equally as beautiful!

We got about 3 inches of snow down here in southern MN. It's odd that the UP did not get as much, being further north. 90's to snow in less than a week. Crazy weather. Great pictures!

This am in Cornell we had almost 3" of the white stuff. Heard that Felch had 7" and Brampton had 5". But by this aft. most of it was gone. Karl B. from ch 6 said the high here tomorrow would be 56. Sure is lots of sky out tonight. The planetary line-up is beautimous!

That second picture almost looks like its in black and white, but if you look closely, you can still see that "haze of greeen" that you like so much, Charlie. Me too! Amazing what a little snow and clouds can do to the beautiful spring colors.

Ya dere in the Yoop--we sure did get some snow in Wisconsin. Maybe should move back to the banana belt up dere!

That shade of green is immortalized by Robert Frost "nature's first green is gold, her hardest hue to hold.........so dawn goes down to day, nothing gold can stay". This is my favorite time of spring. My 1st batch of rhubarb is ready to harvest, the little bit of snow dusting we got in Milw just makes it better - tomorrow night I'll brew the strawberry rhubarb spring tonic!

April 27 and Ground Zero - Is it a coincidence? I looked at this week's photos in previous years and 2001 and 2000 both mention 'ground zero' in their text on April 27. Is this a coincidence? I wonder! Ground Zero means something totally different today and I am melancholy remembering how casually that term was used before Sept 11. O for the good old days! Have a nice day!

Purple Martins are one tough species of bird. Didn't see much of them in the snow yesterday but today they were out stretching their wings. I do love winter but not in April, I also remember snow in early May not too long ago...hope the cold and frost didn't nip our lilacs!!!
