Slushy Saturday

Winter is trying to hold on here in Stumptown. A hail/snowstorm in late April is very unusual (though not unprecedented). Here are a few pictures from the back yard today...












Kind of pretty, but I am ready for a few warm days around here. It was nearly 80 degrees F (25C or so) last Saturday, but that was a one day heat wave. A few more of those would be dandy.

Glad you got the pictures when you did...it's all melted now. What a strange sight! Normally it's past our area's last frost (April 16 or thereabouts).

The sun came out for a bit and now the rolling clouds have come back again!

We had bits of snow and hail up here today as well!

It's pretty on the spring buds.

Too bad it's killing them.

Fruit growers sound like they're going nuts.

Soon apples will join gasolin eand milk in the pantheon of crazy expensive stuff.

Snabby took the pics, but some were in Black & White as the Beaniac left it that way...

She's a dingleberry!
