Ne’er Cast a Clout…

There’s a Scottish saying: Ne’er cast a clout till May is oot.  It means don’t pack away your winter clothing until the end of May.  The following pictures show why this is sound advice in these parts…

Last Tuesday.  22 oC.  Sunny.  Still.

This Tuesday. 0 oC.  Snowy.  Windy.

Marco’s happy, at least.  He loves the snow.  🙂

Not only is Friday scone day at work, it’s also when we finish classes earlier than the other days of the week.  Sometimes I stay on late to catch up on marking and paperwork or to tidy up the midden that is my desk; other times I head home shortly after the bell rings.

Today was the first still, sunny day we’ve had in these parts for weeks and weeks and weeks and…  Well, you get the idea.

No prizes for guessing what I did when the bell rang today.
