Let It Snow, Let It Snow

We'd been getting some rain the past couple of days. It's been pretty dry most of this winter, so we can really use all the moisture we can get. I looked outside just before I went to bed last night, and it looked like someone was having a pillow fight up on our roof. The rain had turned to snow, and the snowflakes were as big as feathers falling out of the sky.

When I got up this morning, it looked like this - about three inches of sparkling snow covered everything, the sun was shining and the sky was a beautiful deep blue. The sun stuck around long enough to melt the snow off the streets, and then the clouds moved back in later. I made a quick swoop around with the snow shovel, before the temperatures dropped and everything froze up again. I'm happy to see the cold stick around for a bit longer. Although I'm starting to get anxious to be outside, playing in the dirt, I don't want my fruit trees breaking dormancy too early. So let it snow - I can wait a bit longer for Spring.

The pictures are beautiful. I wish we could have the beauty of the snow without the cold that has to come with it!

We've had such warm weather here in the Rockies, I planted my Spring crops last weekend. If it snows, I just don't have to water.
