Spring Break

We are spending the week in Elizabethtown, PA, aka E-Town visiting with Bridget's dad. Last week it was over 70°F. This week, it's been drizzling. But there are still a few traces of Spring hanging around. I'm not sure what kind of tree this is but it is one of the few bits of color in the somewhat dreary landscape. Most of the buildings at this facility are made of stone with slate roofs. The newer buildings use brick that's about the same color but it's not quite the same.

These (I think they are daffodils) were growing on the hillside behind the hospital offering a bit more color to the grey background. I just heard that Fairbanks is enjoying a new round of winter with -11°F and snow. So this is starting to look pretty nice.

WeatherUnderground is forecasting snow here starting on Sunday evening so we are thinking about heading towards BWI, our exit point, on Saturday late afternoon just to avoid the weather. 



BTW, the pictures in this post aren't "clickable". That is a limitation of BlogTouch Pro on the iPhone.

Richard, lots more color than we've got around here so far. Snowflakes this evening but my mom's tulips are way out of the ground on the south side of the house....only green at this point.

ya know, you're only a couple of hours by car away from State College where that famous scootering ruffian is known to roam with his Vespa....

That tree is gorgeous. Not sure what it is, but you'd think with those blossoms and the time of year it would be some sort of ornamental cherry or plum.

I am glad you are enjoying some warmer weather even with the drizzle.

I hear that there is weather headed our way this weekend. Hard to believe with today's horizon to horizon clear sky.

"Scootering ruffian" is his new identity? We're headed there this afternoon.

No one that I asked around here was sure what it was either. The color was pretty nice. Today was nice and clear but it's been windy. Probably from the storm that's supposed to be moving in.
