Thunder Snow!

Yesterday was a weird weather day. We had snow, snow mixed with rain and thunder snow. There is actually some left on the ground this morning, though it won’t last long. When I went outside, the snow crunched under my feet. That is an experience we don’t get very often around here.

Rain and Snow. Finally!

Snow On The MountainsWe finally got some moisture in Big Bug country. Rain around the house, but snow at a bit higher elevations.


We got so much rain, I was sure the Big Bug would be running. As soon as there was a break in the storm, I said to my husband, “let’s go take a look at the creek!” Well, I’ve been wrong before. There was some water, but no flow. Not that I’m complaining, mind you. It has been weeks since we got any precipitation at all, so I am most grateful for this storm. We did get a ton of rain, but everything was so dry it must have just soaked it all up like a giant sponge!
