What the what? I woke up yesterday, June 8th, to a back deck covered with an inch of snow. As a dear friend of mine likes to say…Seriously?
We had been in shorts and T-shirts just two days earlier. In fact, we’d been out on a pontoon boat on the Jordanelle four days earlier and enjoying paddle boarding.
The next thing I knew, everyone in town was posting pictures of their new snow-covered yards, decks and patio furniture. And the snow kept coming down hard. Typically, when we get snow out of season, it melts the moment it hits the ground. But we’d had a hard freeze overnight and the snow wasn’t going anywhere.
On social media people where telling us how lucky we were. I’m sorry, but when your brain is prepping for summer, inches of snow don’t make you feel lucky.
But then, I forced to remember where I am. Utah’s Wasatch mountains. There has not been one month on the calendar that hasn't seen snow in some year. I chose this place for many great reasons. And if a June snow is the price we Parkites must pay for all that’s great here, so be it.
So, out came the thick socks and sweatshirt I thought I wouldn’t see again until Fall. The evening was spent with the heater working and The Maltese Falcon on the TV. Not much to complain about.
And today, we’re back to sunshine and happiness.
Cheers to your next visit,
