Inside Out (side)

Inside a geranium blooms, stretching towards the light outside the window, while outside most trees are bare silhouettes. And the times have felt inside out and upside down to me for quite a while now too.

Today ain't a Walking Weather Kind of Day...

Today ain't a walking weather kind of day. That's for sure. Seems more like winter actually wants to assault somebody. It isn't so much that a hard rain is falling as the sky is launching little daggers of ice.

Still this winter has been mostly mild and at least one day a week the sun has managed to make an appearance, breaking through the clouds and the gray. And those days? Well winter doesn't seem so tough at all. And Hofstra? It's a pretty spectacular place to go for a walk.

Whiplash Weather

It was hard to believe the weathermen and their winter storm warnings on Wednesday. Not while the mercury was reaching some record highs. But come Thursday and sure enough outside the window the snow was coming down (really more blowing sideways than falling) for most of the day. And then, in almost as sudden and dramatic a change as when the snowstorm blew in, the snow stopped falling and the sky transformed once again.

It's not every 24 hours that the weather threatens you with whiplash.

Spring Visits Winter

On a lark, and just maybe like a lark, spring came flying into New York today soaring on a balmy breeze. Maybe she just wanted to say hello to remind you of who she is?

It feels like spring today with only the flowers of last summer and hues of winter and fall to clue you in on the fact that it's still February after all. Tomorrow's forecast says snow but it's like all the seasons are here just for today.

You Can Almost Taste May Today

I won't be passing a flowershow like this likely for another three months but I swear in the air of today if you stop for just a second you can almost taste May coming.
