Argh!! Woke up this a.m. to heavy wet snow...so far it's about 2"!!
It's been rainy and cold for the last week, but according to the weatherman starting tomorrow will will be warming up with some 70's in the forecast :)

! Is this rare for you this time of year?

sup'd to be in the 50's today, unusually cold for this time of year.
raining for next 3 days, including some severe. good for me, as I won't have to water.
timing is good, as everything I've put in so far, is well-enough established that they should be ok in strong rain.

Vera- here's wishing you Spring. :)

Thanks!

No...it's not too unusual for the Central Idaho mountains. It is just me not used to this crazy climate and altitude!! I came from Eastern WA. I need to change my username....it's been a while since I've tried. The last time I did it was not allowing me for whatever reason and haven't tried since :O

Should be getting nicer starting today....we'll see!
It must be cold everywhere huh?

Wishing you warmer weather as well :)

I really thought it was going to snow here too because it is so cold. Cold and wet.

No it is not unusual for it to snow. I remember in the early 90's in early May, I was planting my flowers and snow came down it lasted for about 20 minutes and it never stuck. So it is not unusual.

The only time I've ever seen snow this late was in Edmonton, Alberta one May.

But the rain we had yesterday was wild -- coming down with no letup for hours and flooding everywhere.

This is soooo crazy! Yesterday was 70-5F and today is to be warmer yet! LOL! Then I guess we are supposed to drop back down into the upper 50's again. Just plain nuts LOL!
