Will We, Or Won't We?

Well, hello there!  Long time, no see!  Life got a little too interesting over the winter, and I found myself taking a break from blogging.  It wasn't so much an intentional break, but more like it was just one too many things to deal with.  A chore I didn't feel like doing, so I didn't do it.  Life is getting back to normal and I feel like I can jump back into the blogging pool.

Today's question of the day:  Will we, or won't we?  Have a blizzard, that is.

We have been enjoying such wonderful and warm spring days, that the "Impending Forecast of Doom", AKA "Winter Storm Walda", doesn't seem real.  Or, maybe I just don't want it to be real.  Getting into the full swing of spring has been so lovely, I just hate to give it up to a spring "winter blast".  Living in Wyoming, we are never safe from snow.  We have had snow every month of the year at some point, and spring blizzards are common.  Walda is packing a punch, and we are being warned about storm totals of possibly a foot of snow by tomorrow.  Factor in the high, gusty winds of Walda, temperatures dropping into the teens and low twenties, and you've got the perfect recipe for white-outs and drifts several feet high that will be around for a few days.

We had a very warm, dry winter, and being in the firm grip of a major drought, the battle cry has become, "We need the moisture!".  Yes, we certainly do, but I vote we break this drought with 70°F and rain!  Ah, now if my vote only counted...

So, we shall see if we will, or if we won't, get this blizzard.  Walda could change her route and not hit us at all, and just leave us with the soft rain we're having right now.  A girl can dream, can't she?

I leave you with some pictures I took of my springtime yard yesterday.  I hope I don't find it all buried under snowdrifts tomorrow morning!

  2. I am too. Not that happy about the cold weather though.
