Year after year the weather on the mountain never ceases to surprise me. You may live or have plans to live somewhere in the “mountains” and should always be prepared for surprise. Mountain weather can change quickly its always best to be prepared, or else have a healthy attitude about quick changes. I think it was Clint Eastwood’s character in Heartbreak Hill, who said, “You’re a marine, we Adapt, Improvise and Overcome!“
Went into my home office at 6:30am, when everything was brown. Came out at 10:30am, and everything is white! After fixing up the road some and looking forward to spring, the weather service indicates I’ll probably have 7 inches by tonight. It may turn to rain late tonight with an encore performance of mud season tomorrow! The change from yesterday’s video to the conditions today is dramatic.
This is why we always have firewood, extra food and fuel available in case we need to wait a day or two in a pinch! I must confess, however, this time I’m low on coffee and generator gas. We do have chains and snowmobiles if it ever got to that. April second, freak storms.
What kind of strange storms have caught you by surprise? Were you prepared? Or, did you Adapt, Improvise, and Overcome? Tell us about it below in the comments!
