Here is the morning view of the mountains. Yes, that is snow dusting the ridge line of Hogback Mountain. April's sweet showers are falling as flakes in the higher elevations. Tonight the temperature drops into the twenties with high winds driving it down even further. The National Weather Service gives us the following special weather statement: WIND CHILL READINGS ARE EXPECTED TO FALL INTO THE LOWER TEENS ACROSS THE OUTLYING SUBURBS AND MORE RURAL VALLEYS...AND INTO THE SINGLE DIGITS ACROSS THE HIGHER TERRAIN IN THE MOUNTAINS. The sheep are safely tucked into the barn and I am trying to remember where I put the hammer I use to chip the ice off the water troughs.
