Bob said that in the 31 years he's lived up here, there has never been a year that it didn't snow. Not counting the couple of flakes we got a while back, it hasn't snow this year.
That was until yesterday. I know I've said it before that it always snows once (now I understand it's supposed to be the last time of the year) after the Dogwoods Bloom. Three days ago I noticed blooms on the Dogwoods across the creek.
The weather guessers said that the snow level would be about 4000 ft. Remember, we're at 3200 feet. It rained yesterday right up to 3:00 pm and then it hailed. The picture below is three (3) minutes of hail from bare ground.

Then the snow started. Not a lot, mind you, but snow none the less. From a little after 3:00 pm until this morning, an inch of snow would be stretching it. But hey, we'll take all we can get.

Since we're going to start moving the end of next week, I thought I might be able to skip the snow shoveling off the porch and the satellite dish, but no, it had to get me one last time.
Kirkwood Ski Resort reported 44 inches on new snow. Should put a little water into some of the lakes and creeks.
I'm still slaving away packing and taking to storage, but it will be over soon and I can get back to fishing.
