Wednesday morning, after Ms. Pat got home from Line Dancing just before noon, she came running to my shop where I was cranking away making bullets and excitedly asked me if I had looked outside. No I hadn't looked out and I can’t see anything out of my shop. She told me to come outside and this is what I saw.
It was really coming down, floating gently as it came down almost like feathers. Neat....but I was glad JRoger and Susan were going through El Paso about this time where it was nice and dry.
Soon it was accumulating and covering the ground. I don’t remember seeing snow flakes so BIG. They were as big as silver dollars. I was glad to be home and in my shop with the little heater blasting away keeping me as "snug as a bug in a rug"!
This is about as close to a “white out” as you will see in this part of Arizona.
The roof was snow covered. When snow accumulates on your roof like this, it is a good sign. It means that your house is well insulated and heat from inside is not heating up the roof.
It was really quite a beautiful sight…..especially since I could go back in by the fire with no place we had to be. What a great time to play with guns and bullets. Ms. Pat quickly became busy on her latest quilt project. Soon the snow stopped and the ground was clear again but you know the moisture was good for the dry desert.
Later that afternoon, our good friends Larry and Geri arrived and got all situated on our old lot. We are looking forward to having them around for a while, the rest of the winter I hope! Larry and Geri were our neighbors up in the Black Hills near Custer and were the owners of Broken Arrow RV Park and Horse Camp.
Since they sold the RV Park a couple years ago, they have become full-time RV'ers and Professional ATV riders. They go everywhere and go on some outstanding 4 wheel rides in the boonies. I mean Montana, Idaho, South Dakota, Utah, Arkansas, Kansas, New Mexico, Texas, even Canada and especially Arizona…..and I probably even missed a few spots I’m sure. They brought us a big bag of fresh vegetables from a stand over near Brenda where they had been staying prior to coming here. They are delicious!! We are happy to have them with us.
It was a GREAT WEEK!!
