Really Definitive Evidence of Spring

Chani helps change the fire danger sign at the Copper Open Space trailhead from "High" to "Very High" -- a sure sign of warmer weather.

Spring Sunset

Shortly before tonight's sunset. Doesn't it look serene? In reality, the wind was howling and yours truly was freezing. (Mt. Taylor is in the background.)

Early Spring

We're having an unusually early and warm spring in Albuquerque. I checked my photos from last year, and these blossoms first appeared on the 22nd; this year it was the 4th. And some of the trees are already sprouting green fuzz. My predictions: it will almost certainly snow in the next week (for maximum interference with the flowering trees); and more century plants than usual will bloom this year (they seem to like a hot, dry spring).
