Spring Weather



Between the lake and the ocean are just a few feet of sand dunes. This last week we've seen waves pushing through, above the berms, roiling up the lake and adding foam and salinity.

From my deck, I can see each rivulet forming and snaking down from the dunes after each crashing wave.
This is the driveway, under constant barrage.



Yes, that's ice, hail accumulating on the deck, keeping us behind close doors.
Today's weather: wet, with possible snow showers and coastal flooding.

No egg-hunts for me tomorrow morning!
We just hope the winds don't knock out the power.


Happy Easter, everyone!

Brrt. To a Floridian, this picture, in April, gives me shivers. Hope you don't lose power.

Happy Easter rosaria

Eleonora said...

Buona Pasqua! I hope your power doesn't go out and that a warmer front will soon come along. If it makes you feel better it's cold and grey here too...

Un abbraccio,

Happy Easter Rosaria! Hope your weather improves.

Fire Byrd said...

The weather still doesn't seem to know which end is up!
Yesterday we were told would be terrible rain... no, scudding clouds and sunshine.
Today was going to be sunshine and warmth all the way... no, quick appearances of the sun between April showers.
hail stones this morning as well.
Have a warm and cosy Easter.

Oh what a beautiful view from your deck. Perfect weather to cuddle a book with.

potsoc said...

I do hope you have a nice and comfy Easter Sunday.
Up here we are having unseasonnaly warm and nice weather. Yesterday we had 27C when it should normally not have risen over 10C to 14C.
For the first time ever we had a barbecue and ate on the patio with the whole family.
Yes, the weather is upside down...but I selfishly like it.

Still a beautiful view, though.
Happy Easter.

Oh, Happy Easter to you.

I'm surprised there is a fresh water lake so close to the ocean.

Helen said...

I do hope your day is warm and cozy ~~ Inside! We won't be doing any Egg Hunts here either. So I'll turn on the fireplace, make a yummy dinner and enjoy my family.

Lori ann said...

That is alot of weather. I do hope you don't lose your power either.
I loved your last post Rosaria, I miss a lot of those things too. This easter is very different from years past. Things change.
Happy Easter to you and yours,
lori

I hear we are to get a reprieve soon. This rain has been insane.

Rinkly Rimes said...

I'm sure I can see a hint of Spring somewhere! Keep enjoying your socialising until it really appears!

cheshire wife said...

I hope that your weather improves. We have had a sunny day and have managed to do some gardening. Strangely I am not far from Fire Byrd but have had different weather!

I hope that you had a good Easter.

Nancy said...

My family is spending Easter in Manzanita. It looks like the easter egg hunt will be indoors. Happy Easter to you and yours!

Rob-bear said...

Blessed Easter, Rosaria, in your home on the we(s)t coast.

kj said...

Hope you hunted for Easter eggs inside - all warm and cozy!

Dedene said...

Oh heavens! I don't remember such nasty weather when I lived there. Hope you had a lovely Easter inspite the ice.

Tabor said...

You certainly got some bad weather recently. Rhode Island got 200 year flooding. So unpredictable this spring.

Ji said...

Happy April,
Happy Easter!

Happy Belated Easter!

Jo said...

Ice...! Holy doodle. I hope it goes away soon.

It has been very chilly up here in Vancouver too. After that storm on Friday, Whistler Mountain got three feet of snow. We could have used that while the Olympics were here. :-)

Stay warm!

I am sorry for your cold Easter Day, but I can not feel sorry for you... I have seen too many beautiful images of your everyday life. Have I said lately that I am jealous? Thanks for visiting, I do hope you had a wonderful day filled with family and laughter.

Hilary said...

That's one icy deck. Be safe and warm.

Hope you enjoyed your Easter holiday. The weather here has been fantastic after last week's monsoon. Hope it's better where you are too.

That's Weather (with a capital "W"). We're having a bit of drizzle, but not enough to call it rain.

Nicky S (Absolute Vanilla) said...

Yikes, that's pretty inclement weather! Hope you nevertheless had a wonderful and peaceful Easter!

Marguerite said...

Wow, that was some wild and crazy weather for Easter! Hope it was happy, anyway! I would have to head South!
