Another snow day

I woke up this morning to snow.  Yesterday the forecast was for snow starting Thursday night not Wednesday night.  Now I am afraid we will be getting more than a foot of snow.  Right now the snow is falling in big heavy wet flakes.  I hope that I don't lose any trees this time.  I have been shaking the snow off but I have to get to work soon. 

The rule of thumb here in Colorado is to wait to plant after Mother's Day.  This is what happens sometimes after Mother's Day.  I bought a bunch of annuals but I haven't planted them yet.  It is suppose to snow through Friday with the weekend being warmer.  The next two days are going to be in the 40's.  I didn't think I would be wearing sweaters and snow boots this time of the year.


  1. Hi Jody, I just took a picture of our yard and it looks just like yours. I would have settled for the rain; although the snow is pretty with huge flakes, I really wish it would leave until next November.
    Stay warm.

    1. It snowed, rained and sleeted here yesterday. We probably got around 6 inches at our house. At least the roads are clear. I hope this all melts this weekend. I am wanting to get my annuals planted in pots.
