Rewinding to Winter
I would have stayed in bed this morning, but I had an appointment in Lander. I left 30 minutes early because I knew the storm was going to hit Lander first: the weatherman last night predicted 8 - 10 inches in the foothills.
Driving was a bit dicey - it is amazing how quickly one forgets how to drive in this stuff! I fought 2 - 3 inches of slush all the way home. Yuck!
Can you see these leaves shivering under this blanket of white? I pity the poor fools who have turned on their sprinkling systems and set out plants in their gardens. (The last frost is typically May 15th, but it is not uncommon to have snow even in June.)
The snow, although inconvenient, is packed with glorious moisture, so my grumbles aren't too loud. I just don't like the rewind to Winter driving.
