For a short while the sun broke through this morning, allowing Rion to do his favorite morning activity (besides eating) of basking in the sunlight. We have all been sulking a bit because there has been so little sunshine recently. According to the weather station at the Air Force Academy, which closely resembles our micro-clime, we have had 9.7 inches of rain this May. The average amount to date is 0.32 inches.
A local weather forecaster explains that yes, we are having a very wet May, especially on the west side of Colorado Springs. In the link below, he explains how something called the Pacific Decadal Oscillation is leading to all this moisture.Source: May…From Drought to Deluge
I took this photo through the slider door in my bedroom.
We actually received a respectable amount of snow this weekend, though nothing like those storms where the amount is measured in feet instead of inches.
Fortunately I didn’t have to go anywhere today: agility class was canceled. This is the most snow that we have received this season so far.
It’s beautiful, but the whole winter wonderland bit is getting old. We seem to have had an unusual number of ice fogs this winter.
