In my last post, I wrote about a potential storm. It was touted as the Blizzard of 2013!
It never arrived. We got lots of damaging wind, which dried things out even further, about an inch of sideways snow that didn't accumulate at all, and severe cold...
Then it warmed up again.
My daughter was scheduled to arrive on Friday, April 12....
and now they were talking about yet another storm.
This time, however, the weather forecasters were being a bit more cautious. They had become the brunt of jokes made of them regarding their last bit of silly predictions on snowfall amounts. And, we're in a severe drought, so saying we were going to get some much needed moisture and then not getting any was like rubbing salt into a wound, as they say....
But this time, it was quite different.
The wonderful weekend story will have to wait until the next post, because I know you want to see snow in April, right?
THIS IS THE WAY COLORADO IS
SUPPOSED TO BE!!
It was dark and the sky was filled with beautiful heavy, white snow.
I'm driving while I'm taking these photos....
The streets were quickly getting clogged with the heavy snow.
I had to stop at the local post office that morning. Here, our flag between the snow-laden trees.
It started to come down even heavier, and I quickly went to get groceries and provisions for the days ahead when I vowed to stay in and off the streets.
Ahhhh....home and freshly filled birdie feeders.
A Winter Wonderland....
The birds came in by the droves
And chirped and carried on at all the feeders
And today, the 16th, the roads are melting and the robins are about looking for water to drink.
And the feeders are quickly being emptied by my hungry feathered friends
And this round fat robin waits for Spring....
Blessings to Each and All....
