NEARLY WORDLESS WEDNESDAY
When we lived in Albuquerque proper, we would have an April Fool's Day snowstorm once in a while. The biggest was on April Fool's Day/Passover/Good Friday in 1988. Even in the city,we saw 5-8 inches of the white stuff. The next day, Shabbat in Passover, it was warm and sunny, as if the snow had never happened.
In the time we have lived in the high country of the East Mountains, we have seen snow showers into May, and have had significant accumulation well past mid-April. But I have not seen an April Fool's snowfall. Until today . . .
When I got home, the clouds had gathered, and were lowering, and when I got the dogs inside, the snowfall commenced, shortly before 5 PM.
The snow fell fast and furious,
and then the storm passed, as
April showers tend to do.
Now, as I write, the sky is clearing, the sun is setting. It looks like spring in the sky, but on the ground is a small reminder of the season just past.
