Early March Winds In February
The latter half of this week we were experiencing the March winds early, along with temperatures in the 50's and 60's here in the valley. That was after two inches of snow fell around Valentines Day and the eveniing of February 13th, 2007.
After the snow the first half of this week, the large wind chimes hanging from a tree in our yard produced the most beautifully, chimed melodies that you might hear from a church organ. Notice the chimes hanging from the huge, leaning tree in our neck of the woods. The wind just sends out its special mountain melody here in the valley south of Bayfield, Colorado, and it is simply beautiful!
Things have been getting pretty muddy around here in the daylight hours as we take a walk out in the pasture to check on the horses. BUT... when night time comes the mud tends to freeze. AND... the winds of what seems to be an early March come blowing through the valley. We still have snow on our mountain peaks and higher elevations that we can see from a distance hillside. The snow in the valley has seemed to this NW Okie to have stayed around a lot longer this year with the colder temps. BUT... what do I know! I'm only a NW Okie!
