A Beautiful Day

For the past several weeks the weather forecast has either called for rain or snow, with nary a drop of precipitation despite the gray skies. All the recent storms have brought have been high winds. So this morning when the weather said rain I ignored it and started making plans for what needed to be done outside, wind permitting. Imagine the shocked delight when I finished a couple of indoor tasks and looked out the window to see how bad the wind was blowing. The wind was indeed blowing — snow horizontally. What a beautiful sight.

It will take many more days of snow or rain before I can be assured of any pasture this spring so I am hoping this is just the harbinger of more to come.
