Before the Snow

Ocotillos and mountains
It was slightly overcast when Willow, Frio and I set off this morning, but the sun eventually broke through and highlighted the beautiful clouds hovering in the blue sky.  It was unusually warm for a day in early February, but that's going to change beginning this afternoon.

We did our usual hike today, and the Heelers weren't very well behaved.  Grades given out for less than exemplary behavior:  B- for Frio and C for Willow.  Lots of pulling and extra sniffing going on out there.

Apparently the chances for snow are pretty good for tonight leading into tomorrow.  We'll see what Thursday morning brings.
