It happens a lot in Cache Valley, and certainly in other places, too: An approaching season tries to sneak in early or the outgoing season holds on as long as it can. For example, back in 2011 we had a day or two early in November when winter tried to steal a bit of autumn’s space on the calendar. I shared a picture of the results of that invasion in a post on this blog: When Seasons Collide.
This pattern was evidenced again today when Northern Utah woke up to a bit of snow. The official forecast included a hard freeze warning which gave me pause because I have enjoyed seeing and photographing the flowers that are finally appearing. This morning I visited a location where beds of tulips have recently bloomed and this is what I found:
Even though the snow may have been unexpected, the overnight clouds that brought it appear to have kept even colder temperatures at bay – for now. Hopefully this return to winter hasn’t hurt the crops our farmers are counting on, either. Beyond that concern we might as well find a way to enjoy these weather events because it may be some time before summer triumphs in the latest battle of the seasons.
