If April showers bring May flowers, what does April snow bring?

If April showers bring May flowers, what does April snow bring?  Yesterday we got the 10 centimeters (4 inches) of snow that was promised us from Mother Nature.  It started off with hugh fluffy flakes that quickly covered the ground and everything else…

 

We went out for a walk last night, hopefully our last snowy walk of the season…

and came across this bus that had jackknifed across the road shutting down traffic on the main street that runs through our residential neighbourhood in Ottawa, Ontario.  The ironic part was, when we got home (just down the street from this mishap) our son told us he just got off the bus at that stop and as the driver pulled back into traffic from the edge of the road this happened.

I am not sure who made the bright decision to have accordion buses in Ottawa.  More often than not they get stranded when it snows, but that’s another story!

 

This last picture is an attempt at a selfie as I enterred our home, covered in snow…

Today it is plus eight degrees Celcius (46F) and raining, so these April showers may bring May flowers after all!
