Is It Spring? Is It Winter? Does Anyone Know For Sure?

This time of the year in the mountains, it is always fun trying to guess the weather and plan how to dress accordingly. So this morning we checked three different weather websites. It only confounded our confusion and we still do not know what to wear!

We could get rain and/or snow. Both are in the forecast. We could get an inch of snow, we could get 4 to 8 inches of snow, or get your skis back out…we could get 8 to 12 inches of snow. I kid you not! I am sharing all of the forecasts below. Each are reputable weather stations and all disagree greatly about what will happen in Angel Fire tonight. So your guess is as good as mine. And all three could change their mind by the time this is published!

I just put my hummingbird feeders out yesterday. But I don’t think I will put my snow boots away until June! Springtime in the Rockies, got a love it!
