Snow In The Desert

Fortunately for us we get up way before dawn and saw it snowing and it was the "sugar snow". I was ecstatic!  The dogs did not want any part of it, but we enjoyed it. When I took this picture a little after daybreak, it had already started to melt.
Some people that sleep in on the weekends may not have even known about it until they heard the reports on TV or the radio.
