Nature’s Joke Sends Big Chill

By: Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum on April 20th, 2011

Mother Nature has a good sense of humor. Just when you thought it was okay to put your cold weather gear away after a long dark winter, when all but a few patches of snow remained, central Wisconsin gets hit with yet another snow fall. On April 20, no less.

I thought the old saying “April showers bring May flowers” meant rain showers, not snow showers.
Debora Butterfield, Kua 1994


In less than a month, the Woodson Art Museum will host sculptor Steven Siegel for two weeks while he and a volunteer corps makes a monumental paper sculpture in our sculpture garden. Let’s hope Mother Nature decides not to pull a funny one on us. Didn’t it snow last year in May? Let’s hope we avoid a belated April Fool’s Day joke this year.
