And the rains came.....


Early this morning it began raining.


Then it snowed.  


After a little snow, it rained harder. 


The morning began  really dark and dreary. 


We went out for breakfast. When we came out of the restaurant the sun was peeking out from behind the clouds.  
According to the 'old timers' it is very rare to see snow on these mountains. 
 It was there today; and I captured the event.





With all the rain, the grasses and weeds are poking their heads out of the sand. 
 Everything is getting  green!



And that's the way it is.........................
