Wacky Weather in May

It hasn't rained or snowed in months here, so what happens? It decides to rain nearly consistently for 3 days, Memorial Day Weekend! Not only rain, but a little snow at my house in the higher elevations. Also near by, at the bottom of the mountain, I hear there were some tornadoes! Very wacky for California!! I just feel sorry for the businesses up here since Saturday was a complete wash out. Memorial Day Weekend is usually one of the biggies for our local economy, with tourism and yard sales. Luckily today (Sunday) the sun came out, so there's still a little time for money making.

My poor little pitiful flowers are so sad drooping in the snow. It looks like most have made it through. I just hope my nice crop of apricots also survive. Yes it was unexpectedly cold, but we really did need the rain, and this big soaking sure has helped with our drought, and fire season! It felt good!

I'm in Az and it's been pretty wacky here as well. The good news is this will likely put a dampening on the fire season (no pun intended) Interesting read, good luck with your apricots-thanks for sharing!

Up here in Canada (land of the igloos - no, I'm just kidding) it was sunny and bright this past weekend. Enough that I got a sunburn on Saturday morning manning my market stall. I'm not complaining, though.
I really enjoy your blog, thanks for sharing it.
I hope your apricots aren't harmed by the cold snap.
