A few days ago, the temperature was nearly 80 degrees
and I was working in the garden. This morning, we woke
up to snow on the ground!
That's exactly what happens this time of year though in
the Rockies. When we lived in Estes Park, we once got
three feet of snow in one day in April. My parents were
due to visit and were worried that they wouldn't be able
to come. In the Midwest, three feet of snow would be
around forever and impede traffic for days. However,
in Colorado, the sun melted it in just over a day! This
snow too will be gone in a matter of hours and in a
few days we will be back to more typical spring-like
The cat also enjoyed the new view out the front door!
