It’s been an odd day today, weather-wise.
I think I may have used that line once or twice before in a post or two… but I’m saying it again today!
It’s been a pretty non-descript day otherwise, but we can’t have too much going on in one day, can we? Or can we?
I mean to say, it is the middle of May. And, I know that we shouldn’t cast a clout until May’s out, but today I wouldn’t know whether to cast one or not.
It’s been snowing in Cheshire today.
It’s actually been everything, all at once, if I’m honest.
I was looking out of the window at work, and it took a while for me to realise that it actually was snowing. Thick snow at 10.30am on a Tuesday in May.
It soon changed to hail, and rain, and then brilliant, warm, sunshine. Strong winds, more hail, a little more snow, a little sleet, and then heavy rain. Blue skies dotted with grey clouds.
And white clouds.
Apart from the snow, it was the white clouds that fascinated me more.
The cloud formations to be exact. I saw a dolphin, a puppy trying to pick up a ball, an Angel with real flapping wings, several faces, and a traditional weather-forecasters cloud shape. All within a matter of minutes. The winds must have been very strong up in the cloud layer… which will probably explain the snow flurries.
I’m not on high ground, or in an exposed place. I’m in a valley that usually doesn’t get any kind of unusual weather… or bad weather for that matter.
Today we must have been catching up, we had it all. With icing on the top.
