Merry … September?!

10 09 2020

You know that winter storm for the Rockies everyone’s been talking about? (OK, we’ve all been talking about it here in/on the edges of the Rockies.)

Yeah.

It happened. πŸ™‚

At least one part of the basin I hiked around in got at least 2 inches of snow.

You can HEAR the dry, desperate earth and all the thirsty trees sucking and slurping up all that moisture. Like, literally.

From the top of a ridge on my way back to the road, I looked down on a slope full of pinon and juniper trees, and the close-and-foggy air rippled with a sound like a creek running. The world was otherwise completely, totally, absolutely silent, and the fog was so heavy, I could feel it on the skin of my face. But that tender little sound, of water – running, dripping – was completely, totally, absolutely marvelous. πŸ™‚

It was amazing to hang out with Tesora and her family and another band for a little while in that white, wonderful world.

The white melted; the ground still is soggy!

That was probably it for another little while. πŸ™‚ Though we did get more moisture throughout the day in the form of rain (well, spits and sprinkles).

Well – weather wise – its different! 90s one day & snow the next? AND theres “no such thing as climate change”! Really?
So glad you all (horses too) got some moisture.

So crazy all over. … The wildfires in California, Oregon and Washington are terrible. I wish they’d have gotten some of this!

πŸ˜„ Are you kidding me, TJ?! Really – snow?! Unbelievable and so so welcome. We’re having drizzley rain here – just as good but not as visually spectacular. I love your description of our ” dry, desperate earth and all the thirsty trees” – describes our land perfectly, and just like out there, everything here is gulping water like there is no tomorrow. We are so grateful. And Tesora is a particularly stunning red beauty framed by snowy, white landscapes!

I was stoked when I first saw them across a couple of drainages! Surprised … and very excited. I knew her red would stand out; everything else looked black and white, especially when the fog settled. I’m glad it’s even drizzling there!

The brochure says it ranges from around 6,200 to 7,400, but it’s probably mostly in the 6,000s where the horses actually roam.

I hope we get more gifts of moisture this fall!
