Mother, May I. . .

Monday, May 12, 2014
It's been a week since the last measurable snow fell (more in the mountains than here in the valley as is illustrated by this photo on Nancy's blog), and the temperatures have returned to nearly seasonal ones.

The nights have been cool, and it hasn't frosted in a few days.

The grass is green, and the trees are beginning to leaf.

It just might be safe to say that Spring has arrived in the Wind River Valley.

So, Mother Nature, may I please
 put my Winter coats away?

  6. Mother Nature: Yes dear, you can put them all away, ...except for one. I still like to throw in a cool afternoon or evening through June.

  7. We were caught in an early June blizzard in Wyoming about 20 years ago. We stopped at a restaurant for lunch on a beautiful sunny day and the the snow was falling heavily by the time we left. We stayed overnight in Cheyenne rather than drive in it. It was wonderful!

  9. I still have my down parka and my winter boots out! I know as soon as I put them away it will turn real cold. Cool and rainy here today about 50 degrees:)

  10. I sure hope spring has finally arrived for all of us. We had a little frost in eastern SD last week, but since I how have a couple of plants out on my deck I hope we don't get any more frost. My winter coat is at the dry cleaners, so I better not need it.

  11. I can't believe you are still getting snow! I put my spring coat away a couple weeks ago and have been doing coatless. I do hope she says yes, you know, since you asked so nice. g

  13. You know if you put them away you'll need them. Keep the whole state happy--leave the coats out! We've started up the slope of a hot summer. It's already been in the 90's. Sigh.

  14. I was in Sarasota earlier this week, and I REALLY need spring to be firmly in place now. Rumor has it, it will be 85 tomorrow.
