Monday, April 15: Tax Day. And this is how the week started.
6-12 inches predicted. It was a very wet, heavy snow. Now resigned to the fact that our spring flowers won't be blooming, we now rejoice in the amount of moisture that the snow has left behind. It has all but melted as today was warm--in the 50's. Not only did we have snow, but we also had rain that then froze with more snow snow on top of the ice. The roads were horrible.
More snow continues to fall in the Colorado Rockies; we need the snow and moisture so badly, so these spring storms will help, but the state still is not out of the drought. We will see what sort of snow melt there is to fill the reservoirs.
A regular winter wonderland out there.
The pine trees look larger, more magnificent with snow on the bows.
April ice cycles on the barn.
A sharp-shinned hawk feasting.
Needless to say, the pond project got postponed. Perhaps next week end. We are beginning to really suffer from cabin fever, wanting so badly to get outside and dig in the dirt.
Oh. more snow for Monday.
Week 14 of school. We have 2 weeks of the semester left, then finals week. Gosh it went by so quickly. I am ready for a break, ready for summer.
Hope you all have a great week.
