I'm Dreaming of a White...April?

Yesterday brought a brief flurry of snow to Ellensburg (up to a foot was predicted in the mountains this weekend). We woke up to a blanket of fresh snow deep enough to cover the grass. I see some blue sky peeking through the clouds, so who knows how long this snow will last.

Grandma Anna is up visiting us for the week. She waited until mid-April to come up from California--ironically enough--to avoid the snow. Guess we showed her!

Our house...looking more like January than April! This is the latest I've ever remembered fresh snow.

I took a picture up at Mt. Rainier a couple of Octobers ago, with autumn leaves and snow--the intersection of fall and winter. Well, this is the intersection of winter and spring--baby leaves, a viola, and snow!

Hope Grandma Anna brought some warm clothing for this unusual cold weather. Not to worry! Evan's hugs will warm her all the way through. I had to look hard for the viola. We too got snow, but ours didn't stick long. Have a good week and will see you on Saturday.
Love, Grandma Key
