Super Sneaky Spring Storm Surprises Square (Wooster that is)

Just when we were getting in that Pink and White Blossomy State of Mind.....


Hughes Place March 8, 2013

This pesky little storm was a beautiful site to see here in the Wonderful World of Wooster Square. If you waited until the after noon most of this snow had fallen off our beloved Sakura trees. These pictures were taken in the morning...


 
Spring Snow showers brings pink and White Flowers

Easy Storm for Public Works!
Thanks New Haven!

Soon pink and white delights!

Good day to sleep in...

Almost any time we get any snow in Wooster Square it is like a picture postcard. I saw many fellow shutterbugs taking pictures with all sorts of devices. Unfortunately, it was really coming down and I was in bare feet so I did not venture far.

The snow was a sticky sort of affair. You can see how it built up on St Michael's...

A Wooster Square Wonder

So close!

But so far!

Cheryl and I bundled up the dogs and took them to the park. I did have my cell phone and recorded a 360 degree video standing on General Wooster's marker in the center of the Square.

Per Cheryl's prediction of when our Cherry Blossoms will Pop (April 10), we had a tiny taste of spring now this storm. So in my Cherry Blossom Wisdomness, (blossom blogger prerogative to make up words when needed), I think we are safe to say to our tiny shiny buds are a few weeks away. However, this week the temps are heading up to the 50's so who knows. It doesn't take much to wake up our Sleeping Pink and White Beauties out of their winter slumber.

Here are some other views from Hughes from other recent storms..
