Oh, No! Rain!
We had several days of lovely winter weather - fresh snow on the ground, 10 to 20 degrees, sunshine or fresh powder sifting out of the sky. It was easy to get excited about winter, and my boys were ready to go skiing right now. So today it gets depressing. Warm enough to melt snow, solid low clouds that don't manage to be dramatic, just a heavy grey blanket, slush on the roads. Ugh. Then it starts raining. I can't even tell myself "At least we need the moisture", because it is all running off the frozen ground and into the rivers; snow pack is the only way we can use moisture now. The only consolation we can find is that it might be cold enough at Bridger Bowl to be snowing instead of raining.
