Cool Photos Show Effects Of This Year's Delayed Early Spring

Via Twitter, I found these two photos taken two years apart in the same spot in Richmond, Virginia.  

The two pics, by William T. Hark of harkphoto.com shows a street scene on March 28, 2012, after one of the warmest early springs on record.

The same spot, exactly two years later after one of the coldest early springs on record, shows things are far behind that of two years ago.

As always, click on the images to make them bigger and easier to see.

Hark, the photographer, usually concentrates on storm, tornado, wildlife and butterfly photography, but this is an interesting snapshot of how two springs can be totally different from one another.

(By the way, it's worth checking out Hark's work. Excellent images for all you nature and weather geeks out there.)

April so far has seen temperatures much closer to average along the East Coast, so spring is now progressing nicely.

The cherry blossoms in Washington DC should be nearing their peak soon, and even in my icy cold location way up in northern Vermont, most of the snow has finally melted off my yard.

And are those green shoots coming up in warm, sunny corners?  Bring it on!
