the epic spring powder dump

So at the point when we were all getting a bit sick of the snow, and hoping rain would come to wash it away so we could go climbing and hiking and biking, and enjoy Summer … that was when one of the biggest dumps of the season came. It started snowing on Wednesday night – we woke up Thursday morning to heavy snow. And it kept coming, and coming, and coming. More snow. We walked into town, and had trouble keeping our eyes open with the snow. We got saturated, as it was wet heavy snow, and there was a lot of it. On Thursday afternoon, the Jeep (we have a Jeep now) looked like this:

Snow had just started settling on the warm roads. Then we got up on Friday morning. It had been snowing all night. And the Jeep looked like this:


We had to dig it out – we ended up putting the shovel away before digging out the passenger side, and I had to crawl in through the drivers side door as there was too much snow built up to get the passenger door open. And of course, once we got the Jeep moving, we had to go to the snow… and so we skied.



And it was glorious.
