Thematic Photographic : Temporary

On the average, we probably get one good snowstorm in May here, sometimes even in June.  Most of the snow hits up in the canyons, I took these up Lambs Canyon.

Every year that I can remember, the snow last about an hour, and as soon as the storm moves out of the area it starts to warm.

If the storm hits in the morning, the snow can be melted and the streets completely dry by sunset.  If the storm hits in the evening, then you may have to wait until noon the next day.

Either way, spring snow in Utah is fleeting.  Usually only one day of having to wear long pants.

Wonderful posts the last several days, although it does make me miss Utah something fierce. (oh my, I've lived in the south too long) When I lived in Ephraim, we used to say we had winter and July, we had snow or least a frost in the middle of June and then it started again in the middle of August. I do have many wonderful memories of Utah. Thanks for my drive down memory lane.

Oh my winter has hit again! Hehehe! Thank goodness this is only temporary, right?! Funny thing, as much as I really want summer to last an incredible amount longer than it will, your photos are quite refreshing as far as snowfalls go. Especially the tracks leading into the woods! Quite lovely captures.

y-e-e: Glad you like the pictures, if there's even anything specific you want a picture of (I might even find my way down to Ephriam before summer is over) let me know. If I can, I'll get them and post them here for ya.

It's interesting that when you post these in spring, it's refreshing - by January, it will be a very different adjective describing the snow...

y-e-c's comment reminds me of a quote from Billy Connolly - "There are two seasons in Scotland - June and winter".

I'm one who rejoices that snow is only temporary unless captured on a photo. Perish the thought at snow in May.

Someone may want to smack me upside the head for saying this, but I miss wintery weather! It was sweltering here in southwestern Ontario on Tuesday and I was dying for a blast of cold air lol. Really lovely shots, Max!

That's a fair amount of snow for temporary! Though I can remember having snow in April here (UK) - my early tulips all had little white hats on!

Love your take on temporary and nice to see a bit of cool today - far too hot for me here!
