Spring Snow [Updated with Photos]

Posted by: Rick

The official weather station at the "Four Corners" along the Laramie River basin is reporting 52" of snow.

Here is our neighbor's picnic table, so the snow is to the top of it, even after melting some. So, maybe 40" or so?

This will give you a bit of scale:

Thanks to Debra for the photos!

While Spring snow storms are not unusual, these amounts are. If we were there, we'd be snowed-in for sure. (Wishing we were there!)

It will be in the high 70s today in NJ, and we are going to take the convertible out for a drive and lunch having done our morning chores.

Comments:

I’m guessing you’re not taking the convertible to Wyoming? smile

No, Mia is not going to Wyoming. I don’t think she’d do well on the washboard dirt roads. So, once we get a contract on the house in NJ, I’ll start the process of selling her. Interested?

Updated with photos.
