what a difference an hour makes up north

At 6:30 this morning I took this photo from my usual spot at Caribou Coffee as the sun was pouring in from the east. A lovely sight, warm and full of promise of a sunny day. What a contrast to the photo below taken in my front yard close to an hour later where big fluffy snowflakes are falling.

I had intended to wax poetic as I posted the first photo for Skywatch Friday all about how there is a definite sweetness in March, a little preview of spring and all that. Will save that for next time and link this contradiction to Skywatch Friday here.

It's like that where I live too! It was 65 on Monday, then a high of 35 and snow/rain/wind the next. A spring teaser. Love the photos, especially the snowman!

I know what you mean! Just when it looks like spring has arrived, a snowfall comes down as a late surprise. :)

Spring is a real 'come on' girl, - wait awhile and she will settle down.

I love the pink sky in the first shot and the snowy shots are pretty too.

Oh oh -- too cold. But love the contrast. I envy the way you start each morning. No nearby coffee places down south here -- and not many anywhere! (we have to wait until we go to Oregon in the summer!)

Great change indeed!
Fine pictures, Noni.
So funny the snowman :-)
