From the “weather is not climate” department, post by Mike Lorrey:
I woke up today to find a couple inches of snow accumulating on my deck, and was thinking about setting up a nice picture there with some of the birds that visit and some of the easter eggs the family has been making this week, when my sixth grade teacher, Catherine Lacombe, who lives down the street from me on Eastman Lake, sent me this link to a picture she took this morning of a Loon caught on the lake in the blizzard. Apparently the Loon was taking navigational and seasonal advice from Al Gore, and wasn’t very amused at all the white stuff coming down.

This Easter Blizzard is part of the storm system thats providing rain to much of the east coast today, but for northern New England, has converted to snow, sleet, and ice from western Vermont and New Hampshire this morning up to the most northeastern Maine by this evening. We in the north country are usually happy to get snow for Christmas, and thrilled to have it for Thanksgiving, but Easter weekend?
