The next morning we found that it had snowed even more, covering the apricot blossoms. Looks like another year with no apricots.
The snowman from the previous night was looking a little whiter.
It was beautiful, but I was a bit bummed about the apricot tree.
School had been cancelled in the rest of the county, but not by us. The roads were a little icy but didn't have much accumulation on them.
I wandered around taking a few photos before work. I love thinking about how the pioneers would have dealt with the snow.
Lots of sheepherders are out on the range in small wagons. They are tough!
I checked our chicks, which we've moved out to the chicken coop because they were getting too messy. They are growing so fast and can already fly a little.
After school we had some kid friends come over. I challenged them to a snow-person-building contest. Here's a Snow Family.
It's always fun when you can decorate Baby Snowperson with a Dandelion for hair.
They were creative with the accoutrements!
The other competitors were also big into accessories. It was a fun contest and made the snow last a little longer.
Now it's virtually all melted, at least in the valley. There are still several feet of snow up in the mountains.
