Ok a few of you know the fun I have been having the last two days. Friday there was a healthy amount of snow that had fallen around us. This is not unusual for this area, but rarely occurs. It melted relatively fast, but more fell sporadically throughout the day. I waited until yesterday (Saturday) to Head up to Zion since We were supposed to get more of the white stuff overnight. Sure enough we got dumped on again. This time it was slowly melting. The few hundred feet in elevation change and the 20 miles to Zion made a big difference. The snow was not melting up there. I laughed tel I had to sit on a snow covered car at one point, the heavy wet snow has piled up in a tree and well as hubby said it chose that precise moment to crap on him as he walked under that tree. I actually didn't grumble the whole day while I shot roll after roll of film. Of course he had the digigizmo to keep him occupied. If people like I can upload one of his shots just to let you know how much we have gotten. I was so cold I came home and soaked my feet and went to bed. I haven't had time to develop the 21 rolls of film I shot off. Well I got up this morning and there must be frost in the ground. The snow is about 8 inches deep here in Hurricane Utah. That hasn't happened in the Old timers life times. It is steadily snowing so hard that you can't see the other side of the road. Time to crank up the 4X4 and take another spin up to Zion. The stark contrast of the red rock the white snow and actually brilliant greens was magnificant. Today I will take the color film with me. Dan says he is going to wear a hat today.
The weatherman says this is a 100 year storm, and won't let up until tomorrow with a slight chance of it snowing for a forth day.
