Painted pony Reya walks through a snow-globe world. The snow was really graupel – little snow pellets – and it was blowing ahead of a fierce wind out of the west. It didn’t last awfully long, and we had the gift of sunshine at the very end of the day.

You can see those little ice pellets. Glad it didn’t last long and hope it gives the ground a good watering.

Indeed, every little bit helps!

Snow pellets! Like diamonds!
Those horses will take anything they can get. 🙂

With their fuzzy coats, the horses didn’t even seem to notice. As long as my back was to the wind, it didn’t bother me, either. Otherwise, it felt like I was getting a bit of a facial! 😉

“Snow globe”, I like that! I think El Nino has been kinder to us than it has been to the mustangs in the Basin. Hoping for MUCH more moisture over there before the dreaded La Nina arrives later this year.

Based on the snow mounds around Dolores, Cortez and Mancos (and elsewhere – even Dove Creek), you’re right: We didn’t nearly as much as everywhere else. But the winter is young, and more snow is in the forecast! 🙂
