So welcome

18 02 2022

That’s not a trick of the light, and unless you’re completely distracted by the lovely Gaia, you see the snow on McKenna Peak and the snow on the ground at her hooves.

That’s right, folks: For the first time in more than a very long month and a half, we got snow. Moisture, in any form, is extremely much super very totally needed this winter, and although it wasn’t a whole heckuva lot, it was *something* … and we need a whole lotta wet somethings. News broke this week that “the megadrought gripping the American West is so severe that it’s become the driest two decades in the region in at least 1,200 years – and drought conditions will likely persist for years.”

Yikes. (And a bunch of other swear words.)

The snow dampened the excruciatingly long dust trails raised by vehicles on local roads, but by mid-afternoon, those local roads were dry or nearly so. In potentially other good news, next week brings some more chances for snow. Please keep your fingers crossed for us, and dance a dance or two. 🙂

Wish we all could get more than these small dustings of snow…but we’ll take what we can get. I’m afraid this is the new normal.

We hadn’t had even so much as a dusting in more than a month and a half. But yes, I’m also afraid it’s the new normal. 😦
