Welcome to Spring in Utah – SNOW

So look what’s happening in my garden today!!


Can you believe it!!  It’s April 15th!


This is why I don’t plant tomatoes any sooner than I do!  I’m not even sure it the ones in the Wall O Waters will survive!


This whole storm was preceded yesterday by 60 mph winds that forced me to bring in most of my cold frame lids.  So I hope the lettuce is okay!


The new black berries are not very happy about this either!


Flowers in the front yard.



Kind of a pretty picture, if it wasn’t for the underlying fact that my garden is buried in 4 inches of snow.  It all happened very quickly too.  There was no snow when I dropped the kids off at school at 7:45.  And I just came up from my office to take a break and found my wife and daughter out building snowmen at 11:30 am!


This guys expression pretty much sums up my feelings right now!  This is more snow than we had all winter!!  Oh well, at least we are getting water right???

    I hate when we get snow in April. Exactly a year ago we had a storm that dropped snow. Though it was more freezing rain. Luckily we only get it about every four years. No one wants snow in April

    Yes – we also had a snowstorm on April 15th last year. We also had snow in early April this year – I’ve never really kept track so not sure if this is a normal thing or not. I guess the good news is that it usually only hangs around for a couple of days.
