We woke up to snow. I took these pictures at dawn, and it has been snowing off and on ever since. We have a couple of inches on the ground now at 8:30 a.m., and high winds are predicted for this afternoon. A blizzard, on May 25th? We don't even live in Alaska!
We were going to take our new 5th wheel on her maiden trip up to Paulina Lake, but decided to hold off on that. Central Oregon is a camping and outdoor destination point, and many folks came yesterday to get a good spot. Then they woke up to snow. Dang. I really feel bad for those who are tent camping. Hope they stay dry and warm somehow.
So, today I have some choices. I can clean the house, work on writing projects or I can see if I can figure out how to fix my sewing machine and make those baby blankets. Or, I can read my book.
I do think that I'll pull out some meat from the freezer and put it in the crock-pot so that we will have something good for dinner.
I hope that it doesn't last long and that we get some sun on this long weekend. I am listening to Northwest Cable News right now, and they don't seem to know anything about our weather. They are talking about how nice it is outside. Huh?
Wherever you are and whatever you are doing on this holiday weekend, I hope that you have a wonderful time. Even before we got the snow, I had opted out of going to the valley for the annual cemetery hop. I'll miss everybody. Here is the link to last year's event: "2011 Annual Pioneer Cemetery Hop".
