At 4:19am a thundering wind volubly beats a tattoo on our slide toppers and awnings simultaneously snatching a peaceful slumber from me. I stumble outside into the black tempest. I secure our patio furniture and realize that today is going to be a “trying” day in New Bern. Since Snowmageddon most days here have been “promising.” On those days the still winter weather masquerades as Spring. The sunny, delicate breezes coax blossoms and buds to boldly emerge all over the city. But today it seems that Mother Nature is determined to blow all premature evidence of Spring away. The high temperature today will be in the 50s. However 50 mph wind gusts chill everything in a frustratingly winter like way.
Pre-Spring Pictures of New Bern
Like a timid tortoise I huddle inside the slide retracted RV hoping that nothing is ripped off by the destructive winds. To relax, I look back over the pictures I took recently on more favorable days. Perhaps these shots will sooth you too!
