Mother Nature entertained us this week with a ride on her weather coaster, which some might say represented her moodiness. I think she is simply bored and likes to pull a prank or two. Whatever her reason, it made for a thrilling week. From cold to wet and from wet to warm we’ve seen a bit of all seasons in a few days. It’s cold again, bitterly cold in fact. And snow has returned. I think Mother Nature is off pranking somewhere else.
that duck’s head on that 2nd shot is something else…..He is praying I guess. haha
Yes, probably so. 🙂 Thanks.
it looks as his prayer was answered since you did not “shoot” him…no pun intended..haha
Cute little mallards. 🙂
Yeah. I love the ducks.
I’m getting Mother Nature’s mood swing later. Cold, ugly day. Great post, nice work!
Not like here–where it was 84 this week. Love the mailbox. Nice work!
One of those sepia days again .. have them too – letterbox .. is my pick.
Moody or not, mother nature seems to put up a great display for you guys there… soo beautiful!
thanks so much and agreed.
Now’s she’s pranking Jersey! Same week – tomorrow snow.
Yeah it’s always the next day over there.
I like the mailbox.
We frequently have four seasons in a day! Lovely images Seth.
It has turned windy and cold here in Colchester, UK. The snow is thankfully gone.
Okay “The Snow Dance” is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I would have that framed and hanging in my home if it was mine! WTG!!
Thanks so much. 🙂
a mallard stole my mitten once. i still love them, though.
Ahh that’s funny! Thanks.
This has got to be the midwest, right? I’m from Missouri and it sounds like you’re talking about where I’m at! lol LOVED the pics, as usual 🙂
Despite the unruly weather, the aftermath looks peaceful. Lovely shots 🙂
Thanks and yes true.
Reblogged this on Green Light Student Travel and commented:
This was funny!
I got the WORST cold from this weather shift! CRAZY BI POLAR WEATHER!
So M.N. won! 😉
great set…love the mail box…yes, mother nature is pulling pranks here as well…bitterly cold and windy again today after yesterday which was rather warm & rained all day???
Crazy stuff. 🙂
great pictures as always!
Thanks as always.
I also love the mailbox today! Lovely images…
mother nature the life giving force
Thx… so much.
Loving the snow dance!!
Totally understand Seth. We went from 9 degrees the beginning of the week to 61 degrees today. And this weekend it is headed back down into the 20s and 30s. A really weird weather roller coaster! Love the B&W ducks with the pop of green heads!
Yes very true. We have been getting some snow tonight it I think it’s going to be back down to 9 or so overnight.
Same wild weather here in Virginia – 20 degrees to 60; snow to sun to tornados to deluge of rain and finally to major flooding in Radford, today. (and you have no idea how hard it was for me to be stuck in the office today and not be able to photograph the power of all that water!!).
Yeah, I bet! Thanks LB
Weather coaster indeed, capped by 6 inches of rain yesterday.
Wow Bill. Did you float away?
No, I avoid the rain; I’m subject to melting.
Ha ha.. I doubt it. You seem to sweet. 😉
Lovely photos of the prank. 😉
I love this ups and downs.That`s live..And by the way, its winter
Do you ever make a mistake and take a bad shot…LOL (Kidding) Your pictures are always so pleasing to the eye and unique! 😀
Keli, every day. 🙂 Thanks
I live an ocean away from you (France) and we’re having the same weather! From – 5° to 10° and back to snow next week! What’s up with that? And how on earth do you find time to post so often and answer the comments?
I am a very busy bee. 🙂 Thanks.
Hey a commenter from France follows another one… Like Henrietta said it has been also up and down. Almost two weeks ago, I went to Paris one morning and there was still snow everywhere.
So, you are right; Mother nature is pulling some tricks on us.
As always, beautiful and thoughtful captures 😉
Thanks Barb– 🙂
Mother Nature likes to keep us on our toes. Doesn’t like to be taken for granted.
Very true Gallivanta. Thanks
your caption is funny 🙂
Mother nature is SUCH a prankster this week! My post yesterday was basically saying the same thing. I mean, we went from -40 degrees Celcius a few days ago, to +10 degrees and raining!! Today, it’s back to -20-something… truthfully, I much prefer the +10 😉 You captured some great shots of this weather. Thanks for sharing.
Burr!!! You always capture the true feeling of the natural element. Gorgeous take on winter as always.
NJ weather has been schizophrenic too. When I picked my daughter up from school on Wednesday it was 66 degrees, yesterday at the same time it was 41 degrees. Today we won’t make it out of the low 30s with possible snow. Great pics.
Kathy-Are y’all getting any of the snow we just got and are about to get today?
Beautiful shots. Just got to love Ohio winters. Keeps us on our toes.
Yes. very true!!
But admit Seth, that her caprices give you ample opportunity to capture your awesome pictures ;p
This is true. Thanks!
Love the way you highlighted the mallard’s head–beautiful!
I love the chilly walks.
Our snow melted a few weeks ago.
I miss it.
Perhaps it will be back. We are getting more this morning.
You did it well! Nice serie
Thanks! Glad you like this series.
Oh She’s a Prankster Alright! But on the bright side 47 days until Spring! 🙂
Yes.. wonder how crazy Spring will be this year??
It’s been one heck of a ride alright! 🙂
I’m afraid it is a sign of things to come.
Love the mailbox–looks quite ‘Christmassy’, even out of season. I enjoy your posts!
Thanks Stephen. If you are a proof reader—I am sure my site could keep you busy! ha. 🙂
Wow, the last photo is my favourite that’s for sure! I really like your posts, thank you for them!
Thanks so much. 🙂 Glad you like the last one. I couldn’t stay out long because it was soooo cold.
