Not so much snow all at once, it melted in between times.  Mostly just over knee deep at one time.


That is still entirely too much for my liking!! I think the deepest it got here was 4 or 5 inches, it lasted for 4 days, and I was about ready to rip my hair out!

We could never have outside Easter egg hunts outside when I was young.  Too much snow.
It's just in the last few years that the snow has been gone on Easter.  Of course the fact that Easter was the earliest it can be doesn't help the snow issue.  :lol:

I suppose I have Spring Fever.  8)

I can't believe that baby fox sat there and let her take it's picture.  They are usually pretty skittish.

We had about ten inches of snow overall this winter and I was going nutso! I couldn't imagine living in so much snow! I prefer my dreary Washington rain!

Me too, shoe!!  Where do you live in our beautiful Evergreen state?

We usually get 10 inches of snow at one time. :shock:
Lake effect snow.
Not my favorite.
Caused by Lake Michigan temperatures affecting any storms coming across from Wisconsin.
The temp of the water interacts with the moisture in the storm, and causes it to dump excessive amounts of snow in what they call "the snow belt"

When I lived in chicago, I was jealous of Michigan getting all that snow.  coming from NC, snow was a pretty cool thing.  In Chicago, it was brutally cold, but dry.  Now in Zurich, it is grey and rainy and around 33 degrees F a lot of the winter, and I would happily take some more cold for snow or sun.

Karky, your pics are amazing!  Very professional-looking.  I would love to see all those animals.  Instead I see lots of cows.  One day I was sitting here at the computer and saw one walk across the street and into my carport.  (I live in suburban looking neighborhood with farms on several sides.)  Another day a cow walked across the main street in my village as I was driving up.  I laughed hysterically.  Another day a chicken crossed the road in the same place as I drove up, and I laughed even harder.

It is easy to get at least 1 good picture when you took about 75.  8)

One time my mom and I were out two-tracking (which is driving through the woods on very poor dirt roads that have grass in the middle with  "two tracks" to drive in)
It was springtime and we were looking for morel mushrooms, we had the windows down, when we heard loud crashing and rustling.  Out of the brush popped a cow.  :shock:  A cow
No farms near there to have escaped from.  Took a minute to figure out it was a cow.  We were expecting a bear from all the noise it was making, and a cow was completely out of context.  :lol: 
Just that it wasn't a bear was a relief!  :lol:

The other suprising thing is that all those animals from my yard are coming right into town.  I live on the last street in town before the countryside, but it is still right in town.  Sidewalks and everything. 
Might be more correct to call it a village.  Population in my town is approximately 225.  I don't know if that includes dogs and cats or not.  8)

You'll have to post pictures of your morels for me when you find them this year.  I like to find then when they are dinky and photograph how much bigger they get.  But usually I'm too nervous about someone else getting them to leave them behind.  8)  You'll have to see if you can spot your huge white ones when they're tiny and resist picking them.  Just thinking about morels popping up makes me very happy!  How do you cook them?

T-Vix

I live on the peninsula, Kitsap County. You?

Currently in Vancouver, but I grew up in Puyallup.  My parents live on Whidbey Island, so we get up your way several times a year.  Maybe we could get together sometime when I get up to your neck of the woods.


It is easy to get at least 1 good picture when you took about 75.  8)

Isn't the age of digital cameras wonderful?  When I used film, I wouldn't take 75, and they usually came out crappy, but I didn't know until I developed the film 3 years later.

Population in my town is approximately 225.  I don't know if that includes dogs and cats or not.  8)

Sometimes I think the population in my house exceeds 225 (including cats)!!  :shock:
