By afternoon the clouds are clearing and the snow has melted.
This is the flow in the Northwest. After almost 9 years I still haven't learned to surrender and just go with it. Many Californians can't take it and leave. Long, cold, dark winters and then this. It is not supposed to snow in spring. However, I am coming to realize that snow in spring is not a negative. By watching the natural inhabitants, I'm catching on.
Snow does not make the birds sad. They are active and cheerful no matter what the weather. They seem to like snow, maybe because they appreciate all the moisture it brings. Moisture in any form - snow, hail, or rain, is welcome. It brings life.
