oops... March surprise

Cold air poured over the mountains from the north and west and settled in the valled along 220 from Warm Springs south to Hot Springs. An upper level low pumped moisture up and over the mountain tops from the south and east. A chance of snow showers turned into snow showers with an inch accumulation which turned into a winter weather advisory of up to four inches which turned into eight inches of nice wet spring snow. I guess the trees and ground and wildflowers were all so hungry for moisture that they would not let this little storm escape.

So wildflower walks and drives will come to a pause for a day or two while the ground refills with the fresh drinks of spring snow. But this early spring taste of winter should help make sure the next few weeks are full of color.
