I thought that I would document the fact that we had snow in the valley even after the "calendar" beginning of Spring. There was an accumulation of 3 inches of snow in my back yard. In future years, we can reminisce about it and compare future weather events to this one. Below are two photos of my big rose bed, one from the morning of March 22 and the other from the afternoon of March 23. It should be said that we didn't have any rain to melt away the snow; rather, the 23rd turned out to be a warm and sunny day. Notice the receding snow protected by the shade of the house.
