Last night the girls were outside practicing soccer for their games today. We laughed at the snow storm that wasn't, and were ready for a soccer filled Saturday...
Then woke up to six inches of snow on the ground this morning...and the soccer ball right where they left it last night.
Due to our snowier-than-normal spring, Megan's team has had to cancel 3/5 games; Gabby's team cancelled 2/5 (she plays later in the day), and Joie is now 1/3 for her team. At this rate we'll be playing make-up soccer in July.
But what's that they say about Utah weather? If you don't like it wait five minutes?
Same ball. Same yard. Same day. Gabby and her friend had been playing soccer and went on a scooter ride when this picture was taken.
Then they came home because it was snowing so I looked outside again, and sure enough...the five minute rule applied.
Yes, those white flecks are snow.
We're hopeful that spring is on it's way. Meanwhile, the snowpack in the mountains is the highest in almost 30 years, and at some point it all has to come down. The lakes, rivers, and streams are already full, and if the snow in the mountains has no where to go...
Well, let's just say that kind of scenario turns soccer fields (and a lot of other places) into swimming pools.
We hope not...but 6 inches of snow on April 30th might mean that Mother Nature has other plans.
