Springtime In The Rockies

CW. The birds are singing, the grass is green. Oh, wait...
That's not fog, folks, its another snowstorm. I'm getting lazy, so I just opened the back door and shot this without even stepping outside. There is no attempt at art here. Its just a way to give you some idea of how late our spring really is.
Wow snowed here some Monday, crazy weather.

Brrrr...no more snow. We had a bit more this week, but it's not on the ground anymore thankfully!

Ha ha raining here today !

Fabulous shot! Looks like a Christmas Card!!!

I almost feel like I should apologise... I think I may of stolen your spring... we had about 3 days of colder weather, and now we're back to FRYING HOT!!! ;)

Hopefully your spring is coming soon... and may it be a long one! :)

Happy first day of Spring Break! :)
Are you getting the "wonderful" wind too? It looks like your home is surrounded by gorgeous trees!
March 27th, 2014  
It looks more like winter, I can sense the coldness

Deb
Have you ever watched the movie "The Princess Bride"? In the movie there is a character that keeps saying "inconceivable" when something he thinks won't happen actually does. Then another character says, "You keep saying that word. I don't think it means what you think it does." That is how I feel about the word "spring". It implies one thing, but does something entirely different. I was in the Rockies last weekend and drove home in a blizzard. Not fun!

Winter is hanging around a lot longer than normal. Even here in the sunny south. I'm ready for Spring.

Lovely shot and pov

How nice that you can take such a nice shot right out your door. I like the contrast between the dark sharp foreground trees and the lighter background trees. By the time it reaches us I think it will be rain thankfully.
March 27th, 2014  
More snow??? At this rate, it will still be snowing when I get there in May!!
March 27th, 2014  
Sring straighten up! Laughing at Alice's comment as it could be snowing in May! I am sure it has happened.
March 28th, 2014  
Totally overcast here today but snowing in the mountains. More rain to come. So glad I do not live there and do not blame you for taking this shot out your door. It is a wonderful shot, Ross. I think we had Spring when it was Winter.

@monkeykid LOL. No apology needed, Therese. I like the snow, and I have a good time reading the comments when I post something like this. Stay cool.
March 28th, 2014  
@smellychelli Nope! I live in the middle of a bunch of houses but have a second story deck so I look over the rooftops from my back door. This shot requires some creative aiming to cut out the human influence. Thanks for your comment, Michelle.

@dejongdd Great comment Deb. Around here, spring alternates between snow and mud.
March 28th, 2014  
盼望春天Looking forward to the spring
March 28th, 2014  
@mccarth1 The news here was showing a fishing boat in snow at Cape Cod yesterday, so I know you are still getting snow too. Thanks for your comment, Kerry.

@libertylady @sansjuan Alice!!! You must know we get snow in June here! Seriously. When you are basking in the sun in Logan we are using our snow shovels. Now if you want warm Idaho springs, you can check out Nita's area in the banana belt. LOL.
March 28th, 2014  
@rvwalker Yes, and I think where my daughter is in Pocatello is in that banana belt too.
March 28th, 2014  
@libertylady Bruce Grayum and I are going there Saturday, so I'll let you know, Alice. It will be rainy probably.
March 28th, 2014  
@hollandcrew @amandal @traceyhn @nicolecampbell @soboy5 @kbird61 Thanks, everyone. I knew this wouldn't be a photo that gets favs, but it sure has been fun reading the comments.
March 28th, 2014  
@darsphotos @liuting Thanks. I look forward to spring too, but have had a lot of fun this winter.
March 28th, 2014  
Oh gosh -- I thought that was mist til I read your note. I wish spring would come soon for you and for us! We're in the midst of a major wind and rain storm. Hopefully it will clear tomorrow.
March 28th, 2014  
@taffy Thanks, Taffy. I've had fun showing our weird weather, but the truth is it is normal here for this time of year.
March 28th, 2014  
I'm sure Spring WILL come! Interesting image.
March 28th, 2014  
Soon Ross soon!
March 29th, 2014  
@ivan @moxy Yep. But we are always later than most of the world here in our high valley.
March 29th, 2014  
I hope your spring will arrive soon!

@lily Its OK, Lily. I think we enjoy complaining about our crazy weather.
