Wind and Snow 11 May 2015


What an awesome weekend. The snow moved in after the rain of the last several days, early Sunday morning. We woke to ferocious wind and that wet, heavy snow of spring. It was just enough to make a mess and, except the ditches, was gone by afternoon. Others in Colorado did not fare so well with flooding and, in some spots, twenty inches of snow or more. We had this same weather on Mother’s Day last year, but we’d been able to get into the field before that storm. Not so this time.

The jury is still out on what kind of damage was done by the two nights of temperatures IMG_3203below freezing…I’m hopeful for our fruit trees and for little damage to emerging wheat heads. We did get a little nuts, inside for so long. But, there is fresh sour dough bread, chocolate zucchini cake and a batch of paleo pancakes! The time was a gift. Thanks be unto God.
