I was getting a little antsy, seeing as we were 11 days behind the date of the start of last year's epic winter snowfall. The Owyhee mountains have actually held snow for about 2 months now (!), but down here, we'd had nuthin' until last night.
But this morning: a half inch of snow on the ground and a wind to chase away the icy fog that's been sitting on us for the last 2 weeks.
It's only a skiff, but it's the first one down here, and we'll take it!
(That's Hillbillie Willie, sporting the snow nose... why does he always look dorky?)
