March Miracle!


Click on photo to enlarge

Finally, winter has arrived bringing over two feet of snow to our part of Big Bear. It started snowing Thursday and didn't let up until late last night. Some parts of our yard are under four foot drifts and the picnic table on the deck has nearly two feet piled up.

Jim,

Wow! It looks like you can't even get out your front door.

It has been so cold here in the Big Smoke that we figured you might finally be getting some snow - and sure enough there it is! Even our low local mountains got a dusting that we can see.

Claire wants to know how you got outside to take the picture. We hope that you enjoy this (better late than never) bit of winter, and the life that it will bring!

Hey Bradleyi-

I wish I could tell Claire that we had to tunnel out, but that snow in the foreground is just piled on the railing, it was a nice effect for the photo though. There's between 2 & 4 feet on the ground depending on what whether your in a drift or not. I'm going to post some more photos beneath this one in awhile.

What a nice surprise to find a comment from you today, I hope you guys are all well down in the Big Smoke.

Hi Claire, Hi Hannah, Hi Amy!

Jim & Peggy miss you!

Ours took the form of hail and cold. My San Francisco friend said her kids went outside and made snowballs out of the hail. Close enough, I guess.

I'm bundled up in two layers of clothing shivering.

So beautiful and so late?? Or is this normal that you get heavy spring snows?

Ain't it lovely? I sent it down your way after we were finished with it a couple days ago. ;-). We've finally managed to get all the pathways here and there cleared. Nice to see the water, howsoever it chooseth.

wow. Personally I've seen enough of the stuff for one winter, I'm hoping it will all melt soon, but I still think it is beautiful.

The latest weather radar shows a snowstorm coming this way, should hit within the hour. Oh well.

It is so beautiful, a little late, but still so lovely to look at. How's the snowpack and rain totals for the year there? Anywhere near normal?

Have fun in it, and make a snowman!
