It was impossible to sleep late this morning. The sound of hail impaling my roof woke me up at 5:30. The hail storm was accompanied by a crazy lightening show. Chris said it was like trying to make the biscuits in a disco tech. The temperature last night was 35. It rained most of the day yesterday and stayed on the cool side. The high was 46.
I keep reading facebook posts from my friends talking about the flowers that are in full bloom in the valley. Spring has hit the mountain so much sooner than normal. The deer are out and about. Chris found ramps on top of the mountain. They usually do not come in until late April. It makes me wonder how early our wild flowers will bloom around the lodge. I am thinking we may see a full display of color toward the end of June.
