Daylight dressed Sulphur Peak (3,477’) with another dusting of snow after five days of measurable precipitation that totaled 2.56”, almost half of this season’s rainfall (5.73”) since September. Though well-short of the average for this time of year, the transformation of our hillsides has begun.
As noticeable is the transformation in our outlook and attitudes, the exhilaration we are experiencing with the present prospect of a grass season, albeit short. It is magical as green becomes the predominate color: instant grass, just add water.
It is nice to have this rain. I was concerned that we would lose the green too quickly.
So many unique factors have kept us and the grass alive waiting for this last rain. I never cease to be humbled by this ground’s durability and resilience. Amazing!
Well put. I think a lot of it has to do with leaving it to grow. Occasionally I think about the dust bowl of the 30s when farmers plowed the grasses in the midwest.
