April Winter Snow...Finally!
Here we are April 7th and Winter has finally arrived in Northern California. You all know about our historic drought and how desperately dry we are. Well thank you for all the prayers and well wishes and rain dancing. Those are tiny little snowflakes falling! We had rain in the wee morning hours.
This will not be a big storm for us but we are thankful for every drop of moisture we can get. This is looking out my front door. So peaceful and beautiful.
This is the same view out my kitchen French doors only one hour from the first photo. Hooray! This will help to water our dry forest right here around our home. I am praying the mountains above us are getting lots and lots of snow. The ski resorts have had debilitating years of no snow and lost business. This snow is too late for them once again however it will help the water table ever so slightly. This is a perfect day for me to stay indoors and do some much needed cleaning of remodel dust. Yes, it is a daily challenge. I think I have cleaned and then turn around and find out I need to begin all over again. I am able to sneak some computer time in and some National Letter Writing Mail time too. A girl has to get her Creative Bliss fix.
May those of you who have had your Winter weather be finding Spring with Sunshine and Blossoms. To my friends across the world may you be enjoying your Autumn as you head into Winter. I do feel the world has been a bit topsy-turvy with weather and the new normal is "crazy".
Enjoy your Creative Bliss as you go and make something Amazing...

Enjoy your snow and the results of it later!ReplyDelete
It looks so beautiful the snow and your yard and deck. It was sunny and mid-70's here today!ReplyDelete
New normal is... ??? But glad you got some of the white stuff!ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness! I'm glad this will bring some much needed moisture, but better you than me! : ) We are dealing with quite a bit of rain this week (I'll send happy thoughts that maybe it will make its way your way), but the temps are in the mid to high 60's so I can't complain. Plus, it is greening up the grass and bringing everything from flowers to trees back to life.ReplyDelete
Hi Sweet Friend! I'm so glad you got a bit of much needed moisture...and in the prettiest form too! What beautiful views you have, Sherry! xoReplyDelete
I hope that snow is falling in the mountains!ReplyDelete
Rain dance, snow dance...whatever just so you get some moisture! We are having record rains here, I would gladly send you some if possible. About the dust, I saw this on pinterest and it really helps. Tape a furnace filter to an inexpensive box fan...it is a great air filter! I still have dust....surprising how quickly the air filter needs to be changed.ReplyDelete
Yes, we'll take what we can get. We had a very good morning soaking here in the Valley.ReplyDelete
Sherry, at last, dear - I wish for you it will continue ,but maybe with rain, instead of the snow, lol- seems more normal, with rain for now !! Here today the sun is shining beautifully, and we had tea outside this afternoon ,-so lovely ! Thank you for your latest note Sherry , and hugs from DortheReplyDelete
Glad the snows came...we are colder than hell down here, and WINDY as all get out. XOXOReplyDelete
Yay - I'm so glad you got some snow, even just a little. Hopefully the rains will come, too. We are actually having storms today with the possibility of a tornado later...not fun. Have a great day :)ReplyDelete

I'm hoping you get a lot more precipitation for your dry grounds. I think it must be heart-wrenching to watch your beautiful gardens wither day by day during the drought season. We've had rain today, and it would be so nice if I could parcel it up and send it all your way.ReplyDelete
I hope you get to have some creative time.
Still asking the universe for water for you in CA. Happy to learn that you got a bit!ReplyDelete
Hi Sherry, HOORAY for the snow!! I am so glad you are finally getting some needed moisture. Your pics are beautiful even for April. We are about to have a Texas rainstorm. I wish I could it your way too.ReplyDelete
Snow in April?! So happy you're getting some much-needed moisture there!!!ReplyDelete
