"The sun was warm but the wind was chill. You know how it is with an April day. When the sun is out and the wind is still, you're one month on in the middle of May. But if you so much as dare to speak, a cloud come over the sunlit arch, and wind comes off a frozen peak, and you're two months back in the middle of March."
- Robert Frost, Two Tramps in Mud Time, 1926

This very much describes today. This morning it snowed. This is not supposed to happen on April 6, although I guess in Indiana it does. I hope my tulips survive. They are almost all in bloom and I will be mad if the snow and cold snap causes them to die :(
