Summer is Getting Shorter

Posted in Nature, Photography by leahyetter on May 19, 2011

We went to bed last night to the sound of rainfall. It poured all night long. Then this morning, it was eerily quiet.

We pulled the curtains and there they were, big wet blobs of snow falling out of the clouds at a high rate of speed.
Snow? Now? Ugh.

The internet went out, the power blipped, and there was nothing left to do except bake a cake. The snow finally stopped this afternoon. It’s melting away as I type and I’m just hoping that’s the last of the white stuff for a few months. We’ve got calves to brand.
Summer can you hear me? Summer do you see me? Summer can you find me here in Wyoming?

    We often get one heavy snow near the end of May. It covers the newly bloomed tulips, and I have to go out and shake it off the trees near the house, or it breaks the branches because the leaves are out. It is so depressing – but I’m sure you know how it feels!

    OMG you have got to be kidding me! This makes our solid two months of rain look pleasantly springy!
