Warmth and Ice!

It's been so warm (40s F/ single digits C) that we lost our snow, and Starbuckeroo even shed a chunk of fur:

I took that photo on Saturday. That night, rain started falling, which is very annoying! It ruined the snow for skiing, and covered the roads with a slick of ice! So we stayed home all day Sunday. This morning, schools were cancelled. The Minor News reports:

The rain began falling shortly after 7 p.m. Saturday night as temperatures hovered around 32 degrees. As the partially melted slush falling from the sky hit the ground, it froze, forming a layer of ice over the snowpack. The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for the central Interior as the rain kept coming throughout the night, falling and freezing until 5 a.m. Sunday.

Linden sat on the couch and posed like an adorable supermodel dog:

Starbuckeroo sez, "Hoooooold me, papa!"

This morning, I heard cars driving back and forth, so decided to come to work. I left the ladies on the cowsch:

Campus had been gravelled, iced, gravelled, iced, and then gravelled again:

You will be amused to hear that [my] Dave's been working on the Alaska video footage that we shot when we were up there, what, 5 yrs ago? In fact he just finished editing the part where we hooked Autumn and Linden up to the kids-on-sleds. So funny!

I was just thinking that we were out there in mid-March, and temps were just starting to hover right around freezing. It allowed us to enjoy the ice sculptures, but still walk around comfortably in our ski jackets. Climate sure has changed in a short amt of time,

Will you send me a copy of your vids/photos? I'd love to see 'em!

Dave says "I was thinking I'd send a copy along anyways!"

Linden was lucky that you all stayed in the last weekend.
