It has been on and off here all day just like your two pictures.
You sound like my husband. He told me 3 days ago "This won't last long. They melt fast this time of the year." Only it has to stop snowing first before it can melt!
Maybe we got a little too optimistic. We put up the swing on our deck two weeks ago when it actually looked and felt like spring. Swear it has snowed ever since.
