Writing out of the Week

Spring flooding meets spring snowstorm along the Red River. 
We have started meeting via Zoom at 5pm on Friday to write out of the week together. On Friday, April 10th, Nancy Gourde provided this prompt. We enjoyed writing in response and thought you might like to try it too.

"Courage is not the towering oak that sees storms come and go;
it is the fragile blossom that opens in the snow."
- Alice M. Swaim
"The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another.  The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month."
- Henry Van Dyke, Fisherman's Luck, 1899
"In the spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six different kinds of weather inside of four and twenty hours."
-  Mark Twain

Think of memorable April weather (good or bad) that impacted your plans or significantly altered your course of action. How did it affect the enjoyment or success of the activity?


What has surprised you about yourself as you make your way through this unusual springtime?
