Spring Snow

When I awoke this morning this was the view out the window at the top of the back steps:

Spring Snow 3/25/16

This is the latest I have ever seen snow on the ground in this area. Occasionally we'll see bits of wintry mix - snow intermingled with rain - in early spring, but this is unusual. It doesn't usually stick.

It won't last, of course. The mist in the distance is the snow sublimating away in the morning sun, and open patches are already appearing in the field to the south. The high today is projected at 50°, so everything that isn't in northern shade will likely be gone by midday.

Still, it's like winter is hanging on with one last, desperate attempt to remain, to be remembered.
