Super dry here too. Got some clouds today but no rain and no real chance of rain for 10 more days. Since the early frosts it has mellowed out. I am trying to get the garden cleaned up but still harvesting broccoli and raab and bok choi and chard and tomatoes.

Rocky Mountain National Park.
Yes, the high country has gotten some snow. That's a beautiful thing. We need all the snow pack we can get this year.

Wow, 8 inches already! We could be in for a doozy this year.
I think we've hit our hi of 36, and having light flurries. Cool It's all good. I love living in an area that experiences all seasons geek

We had the clouds and they warned us of snow but we only got a small flurry. It went down to 20F last night. Everything in the greenhouse froze but I had already picked all the green tomatoes etc. We desperately need the snow/rain/moisture of some sort.

We only had a couple of flurries too. Mostly just cold and menacing clouds Rolling Eyes I woke to 27° this morning, but it's clear, sunny and supposed to hit 70°. tongue

You do live in some pretty rough country there in South Dakota, however I've seen the pictures you've posted of your area and it's beautiful! I know you'd never leave that Very Happy

Yeah, I love it here but the long winters can wear on a person. This morning I got up for work and went outside to about an inch of snow and frosted windshield, I need to start looking outside when I get up to know if I need to start the car or not.

Yeah, I think we are in for it this year Rooster. I'll take it, I love snow but I hate whe it's just plain cold without snow... Today we are trying not to blow away, it's Trampoline relocation weather. 60 + MPH winds, pretty nasty and a fire started this morning so that's not good at all.

Agreed on snow and cold. Cold with no snow isn't good for me either lol. We went thru trampoline relocation yesterday and more expected today. Blah! Sorry to hear of yet another fire.

The wind blew my firewood stand over (a huge metal thing filled with firewood) at work, lol, It's gonna take 3 men and a boy to pick it back up. The wind left us, must have wanted to give you a visit. I think the fires are done, I know 20 people were evacuated but I don't think any homes were lost.

That wind almost took my cold frame away, or at least the lid. We got a smattering of rain last night. I am hoping that means the fire restrictions might be lifted.
