Happy Easter

HAPPY EASTER
For those of you who do not know how they pick the date when Easter falls, mum says it goes as follows.

The first Sunday, after the first full moon, after the first full day of spring. Easter can fall from March 22 through April 25. It is rarely this early in March. It won't be this early again for a furry long time. Easter of 2035 as a matter of fact, I don't think I will be around!

But I looked back to last year when Easter was in April. We again had snow and cold and Easter was nearly two weeks later. Here are my linkies to post last year showing our terrible cold we had last year. April 7 and April 11 It was the middle of April before we got rid of our snow. Actually it was gone in March, then all of a sudden we got cold and snow again.

Here are pictures from Saturday morning of the snow piles and the yard. Mum says the snow piles off the patio are about the same height as they were back in February after the big snow.
I hope this is it for this year. As of now at the official measuring station this is the second snowiest winter season in Milwaukee. Mum says that with the sun being higher in the sky and the longer days helps melt the stuff faster. Even today she said it was getting nice and melty in places. Just harder to tell.

Everyone have a good Easter Day.

Yeah, mommy wasn't too happy about K-State losing, but the other Kansas team won. Just have to see what Creighton does.

Can you tell mommy has no winter life in Nebraska? haha

I certainly do hope that you don't get any more snow. You have had enough. It's time for the flowers to come up. Happy Easter!

I'm in the Twin Cities, so I feel your snow-related pain! It has snowed every day for the last 4 days now and while my dog is loving it, I am ready for spring! I took my old cat out onto my deck and set her down in the snow to see what she thought. She wasn't amused ("Are you people nuts?"). But at least she got some fresh air for about 30 seconds.

Derby is a great name, and I love his coat!

Oh my, Derby. We got a dusting of snow this morning and the woman was all like..."I can't take it anymore!!!" but I'm going to show her YOUR photos and maybe she'll calm down a bit when she realizes that it could be worse.

Happy Easter and I hope the snow melts soon and I hope you have many days of warm sunshine ahead.

Sassy Kat said...

Happy Easter to you, that was interesting fact on Easter. You got the snow that we were to get on Friday. Lucky for us it didn't come down in our area but stayed to the north of us. The mom and dad of the house were really happy not to have to plow out again. We also have had record snowfall this year. Enough is enough, I hope no more.

Gretchen said...

Yike! All that snow. Wow, it is beautiful in pictures, though.

Happy Easter--and now, I don't think I will be around in 2035 either. But that was good information about when Easter comes.

The Easter bunny visted me and Mike. We got baskets filled with treats.

Easter Hugs...G

Happy Easter Derby!

Black Cat said...

Oh poor you and Mum, that snow looks very cold. There's been (and still is) lots of snow here in the Yoo Kay too but not where I live (so far anyway) thank goodness. That was really interesting information on how Easter is calculated. Makes it so much easier to understand than all those incomprehensible mathematical formulae! Stay cool. No, I mean WARM!!! :) xxx

China Cat said...

Willow and I hope that you had a Happy Easter Day! We had some snowflakes here but nothing like your snow!

Purrrrrrrrs, China Cat
