snow, snow, and more snow

Just as spring really seemed to be settling in here in Skagit County, we had a rude interruption in the form of 18″ of fresh snow. We’ve lived here for 14 years, and have never seen a snowfall like this (we usually consider it a big snow year if we get 6″ for the whole season).

It may have been a real pain to dig our car out of the driveway yesterday, but I had a great time stomping around my neighborhood with my camera, breaking trail on the sidewalks and looking for spring bulbs peeking out of the powder.

    Beautiful photos! Here in Colorado Springs we normally get quite a bit of snow but this year we have seen basically nothing. I’m jealous you already have signs of spring, I won’t see anything for another good month or more here.

      Unfortunately all our signs of spring are now under of foot of frozen snow! Things are supposed to thaw next week, I guess I’ll see if I still have daffodils after this.
