Guess I should have winterized and put the trailer away after last week's camping trip, before the weather changed. This is 4000' elevation in the Sierras.

In town at about 6:00am, 2,100 ft elevation.

When it was all over we had about 2 inches. All melted away by noon except for what remained in the shady areas.

There seem to be a lot of people from Arnold, Robin. We've seen quite a few headed for Montana or Colorado. We're staying here, despite the snow. One year we had some in June and I can remember getting a foot of snow in early April. Yesterday afternoon I managed to get the trailer into covered storage at a lower elevation. If the weather is decent after Easter, will head for the Central Coast.

Speaking of spring snows! We were pretty stunned yesterday to get a 4" dump at 500 ft. here on the Olympic Peninsula! Some Maritime spring weather huh!!

Snow is beautiful here in the woods, but it was not beautiful watching our blooming Rhododendrons bend to the ground with heavy wet snow, our daffodils, forget-me-nots, etc. etc. get buried. But Nature has a way of surviving and setting a good example. We may still go camping next weekend - though temps are still in the 30s at night. But if it rains and blows - we'll wait! We already did that a few weekends ago!
