One more spring picture

A spring snowstorm came through yesterday! It started with several hours of rain, then freezing rain, and then finally snow. I stepped outside during the storm to get one last look at the emerging blooms on our weeping cherry tree (above) in case they didn't survive the storm. We didn't get anywhere near the 6-10 inches that was predicted, but it made for some beautiful scenery. This morning as we drove to church we marveled at how beautiful the sun made all the ice-coated trees sparkle and glimmer. But then during church, everything started to melt. All through the sermon we were startled by ice and snow sliding off the roof. After lunch the kids went outside to get in a couple of sled runs before it was too late, and somehow that turned into wading in the creek in the woods! By evening most of the snow was gone. What a crazy weekend of weather.

I may be MIA the next several days on the blog. I have to finish our taxes and prepare for a trip to Florida I'm taking with my friend Carrie next week. Hopefully later in the week I will have a chance to tell you why. It has something to do with one of the books on my Spring Reading Thing list. I'm also overdue on telling about our Iditarod project, so maybe I can get to that too. Have a great week!


  1. I am incredibly jealous! I love FL...where are you going and what are ya'll going to do down there? Or is that nosey? Hope you have a safe and wonderful time!

  2. That is a beautiful photo. You are very talented with a camera, Kellie.
