St. Scholastica and Storms

“Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away; for now the winter is past, the rain is over and gone.”  (Song of Solomon 2:10-11)

This is from a scripture passage from a traditional antiphon associated with the feast of Saint Scholastica (February 10), the twin sister of Saint Benedict.  However, today (February 10, 2013) it does not appear that the winter has gone.  The view below is of the prior’s door after it stopped snowing yesterday, and it certainly is the most snow I have seen there since I have been prior.

Blizzard 2013We often say here in the house that the feast of Saint Scholastica traditionally does mark the end of the heaviest segment of the winter months.  Perhaps this year that is not the case as the feast day was preempted by the Fifth Sunday of Ordinary Time.
