Snow Changes Everything

In our area we’re obsessed with the weather.  No, it’s not because we rely on agriculture and tourism to fill the coffers and cash registers.  And it’s not because we use the old adage, “If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes.”

Snpwning a couple of inches an hour

It’s because we have long periods when it doesn’t change, and when it finally does – BANG!

Rapidly covering everything

 

That happened this week, and as I type this, Storm Q is hitting the Midwest – hard.  It dumped a load here first, though.  We received about 6 inches of wet, heavy snow in about 3 hours, though a light dusting continued after that for a few hours more.

How does it hold all that

We’re not complaining, mind you.  In February, the average rainfall is about 7 inches, and we have less than half an inch to date.  Drought is a word that we hate to use, but one that may be prominent in our vocabulary this summer at this rate.

Just to help you imagine the winter white stuff in Flynn’s Crossing, here are some photos from the ranch during and after the storm!  Enjoy!
