Today is not a good day. I am looking out the window and it is raining! Rain is not bad, but on top of snow and with more snow coming it will be like a skating rink! Going to church this morning was a real test of righteous folk, or foolish folk, I don't know which. The bare sidewalk was icy so everyone was walking as though we were walking on a basket of eggs!
Ranchers will tell you this usually happens around calving season and we are there. Tomorrow they are predicting a blizzard -- high winds and snow. I don't envy anyone who has to be out in it. This rain will take some of the snow today. In fact I can hear the melting snow run through the down spout outside -- that spot where the melting water pools and makes an ice skating rink for the birds!
Well, every season has its wonders. I went out to visit some friends in the country this week. I thought I better go before this storm comes along. The drive out there is so pretty and their place is tucked into the trees with a backdrop of rugged buttes. These two bade me "farewell" as I headed down the lane.
