Once the clouds finally parted this morning, I could see that some snow had fallen in the Pah Rah Mountains. The last accumulations from winter had melted a few weeks ago. I hear on the news that this storm did cause some traffic disruption in the Sierra Nevada.
The cold weather is supposed to end tomorrow, and within a few days it's likely that we'll be complaining about the heat and starting to think about getting the swamp cooler out and ready to run for the summer. I hope so, actually, as we're very nearly out of all firewood, and Big R did not get in another shipment of firelogs, so we are scraping the bottom of the wood pile.
A late storm like this shouldn't really be a surprise. Two years ago next weekend, Lisa and I were in Tonopah doing field research for the Tonopah Westercon bid when to everyone's surprise, it snowed, making the Jim Butler Days Rodeo somewhat soggy.
