Wacky weather

I did this sketch from inside the car at the park and ride last Friday while I waited for my bus. By the time I got on the bus it was snowing pretty hard and by the time I got home at night there were several inches of snow on the ground. A week ago it was 75° F and the kids played with the hose outside in their swimsuits. I don't get it. The weather has just gone all wacky. (Niji waterbrushes and gouache on watercolor block.)

El viernes pasado hice este dibujo desde dentro del coche mientras esperaba en el park and ride a que llegara mi autobús. Cuando llegó ya estaba nevando bastante fuerte y cuando llegué a casa por la noche había más de diez centímetros de nieve en el suelo. La semana pasada hizo 24° C y los niños jugaron en la calle con la manguera en bañador. No lo entiendo. El tiempo se ha vuelto loco. (Pinceles Niji y gouache en bloque de papel de acuarela.)

  1. Qué bueno el efecto de tiempo desapacible, húmedo y de pocas ganas de pasear... brrrrr!
