Snow… in April?!

// April 6th, 2008 // Photos

I woke up for the Dawn prayer this morning to find it snowing. I've heard of April showers… but not April snow!

The weather in London has been extremely diverse these past few days: it was the hottest day of the year so far on Friday, dull and overcast with rain yesterday (typical April weather) and today… well, you can see for yourself!

These shots are were taken from within the confines of my warm bedroom, looking out into the back garden.

My mum's flowers must be very confused…

For some strange reason, my neighbours store their spare wheelbarrows on the roof of their shed.

The mendhi was done by a friend last night at my party. :)

    We often get snow in April, but not this year. The rest of Canada is another story.

    Ohhhhh we had the exact same thing a week or two ago! Except it was even crazier ‘cuz it was SUNNY for a whole week, and then BOOM! Next thing you know, wind storms and flurries of snow!

    Your hand is beautiful… don’t you know plumpness is apparently a sign of beauty? ;) :p

  5. Snow in April!…

    Well, it doesn’t snow that often in England anyway, but snow in April is really unusual (though I’ve witnessed snow in Spring in the past, in the early 1990s when I was at boarding school in Suffolk) particularly when it’s……

    Mouse: if Sumi were here, she’d remind me that plump hands = a sign of fertility. :P

    You never did tell us what games you played at your party.

    Snow in April s not unusual here in Denmark, but this winter has very cold and windy, and when you have wind and freezing temperature, it feels like -20C.

    We had snow the other day too! I woke up when it had stopped though :( And it wasn’t enough to make a snow kitty or anything out of.

    I am shivering! Cold and I don’t get along very well!

    Your palm is beautiful, sis. Don’t worry so much about whether it looks plump or whatever.

    Jazakallah peeps for the hand compliments… though your comments have kinda made me feel a bit self-conscious! :oops:

    teagirl, do you also work in a lab? ;)

    Shan, I didn’t play any games in the end. It didn’t seem like the right crowd for that, and people were chatting away… but near the end of the night, when there were only six of us left, I decided to break out a few henna cones I had sat in the fridge. That seemed to work well.

    During my undergrad years I worked in a lab for a year actually.. :)

  17. iMuslim says:

    Ah, that explains it then! What was your project on?

    I checked my spam folder, and it isn’t there, so it must have been a problem with the browser when you posted the comment.
