Signs of Spring – Good and Bad

Our tree is finally starting to bud out and produce leaves.

But something did not quite look right over at our neighbors - Cataloochee Ski

So we walked over to the ski area to see what was happening.

HORRORS! The snow is melting! We will miss you!

    There was snow up in the mountains above us last night, but it didn’t last through the day today, so we didn’t get to see it AGAIN!!! We are as disappointed as you, I’ll bet, but at least you DID get to have some for a while!

    It is the end of the ski season then? Do you get a lot of hikers?

    It’s so sad when the snow melts 🙁 I would love snow all year round, myself and mum are trying to convince dad to move to Alaska! But he grumbles about not liking the cold, sigh…

    It has been raining all day today, and so our snow is going very quickly, leaving us with lovely mud! Although the weather-guessers are saying that we might get some snow tomorrow (although I don’t think it will stick around very long)!

    Hmmm…. looks like you can’t have everything, right??
    Don’t worry! Your snow will be back in less than you think!

    Oh no! I hope you managed to get one last snow walk before it’s all gone.

    Don’t tempt mother nature, we’re not out of April! Maybe that’s only scary up this way…

    Maybe you can put some in the freezer for whenever you need that “snow smell”? But with the thawing of snow comes even more fun…MUD!!!

    I love the pictures with the snow. I will be sorry to see it gone as well!

    We still have our paws crossed for one of those freak Spring snowstorms. I think the calendar is working against us, though.
    Woo.

    Oh No, say it isn’t so……..How many days till snow season starts again??

  20. Ozzie & ZoZo on April 21, 2010 at 11:39 am

    I suggest running up and down the snow as much as poosible. Be thankful you have some still!

    Paws,

    I don’t know TH… we’re having some furry weird weather over here and it’s snowing again in the Sierras! Maybe you’ll get a bit more…?… while dreaming of next winter! It’s going to be a great summer – look at all the greens!

    It might still snow one more time this month…who knows?!

  24. The OP Pack on April 21, 2010 at 8:35 am

    Sadly that is a fact of life, but take heart, TH – it will be back. Meanwhile enjoy your hikes in the beauty of spring.

    Awww! Hopefully you’ll find some cool mud baths to tide you over until it comes back!

    And here I thought today might have some Herd vs. greyhound racing today!

  26. Kari on April 21, 2010 at 6:23 am

    snow melting does normally happen around this time of year!

  27. Martha and Bailey on April 21, 2010 at 4:20 am
