With the Owyhee spring comes the unpredictable weather: heat, cold, rain, wind, and the surprise snowfall.
It's a treat to wake up to the unexpected white stuff on the ground.
But, oh, that cold wind! Its roaring grates on your nerves, sets your teeth to gnashing, and stands your goosebumps on alert and your neck hairs on end.
The horses turn tail to the blusterous gales, and I hunker down inside, watching the snow evaporate and listening to the howls.
