Spring Snow Storm, March 30, 2003
The flatland calendar says it's Spring, but Mother Nature has made the point
that that calendar is not the mountain calendar. Everyone seems shocked by
todays snow, but it is normal.
By the time I went out for a walk around 5:30 pm there was ...
14" of snow on the ground!
snow is stacking up!

head back towards the house. The trail the dogs have made ahead of me seems to
glow from within. It looks like there is a layer of snow on the bottom that is
whiter than the snow on top.

look a little frosty.
its time to go to bed.. You know how they always show those houses on the
Christmas TV shows with their spayed on Hollywood snow. Well this is for real!
These are the front dormer windows above my bed. It really does looks like
winter! But, I bet I'm mowing my yard in a T-Shirt by Thursday!!! Anyway, time
for bed. I'll fall asleep listening to the snow getting blasted against the
glass of the windows. As of 11:00 pm it's still snowing outside. Wonder how
much I'll wake up to in the morning.
