Snowflakes and Raindrops and Wind, Oh My!

Some sun, too.

Bend changes its weather faster than I can change lanes.

Maison Elliott faces south into the little fold up which Newport Avenue runs. Between our house and the houses across the valley I can see big fat snowflakes falling. The snow is blowing nearly horizontally, and the sun is shining.

Today we had:

From midnight until noon: snow, sometimes heavy.
From noon until 3pm: bright sunlight. Snowmelt was pouring off the roof by the bucketsfull.
And now this. Wind, sun, and snow. The sky is blue overhead.

My daughter, on spring break, is visiting our fair city from Carlsbad, Calif. and reports that she got a bowl of gelato downtown this afternoon, stepped outside, and it started snowing again.

Place can catch the unwary by surprise.

Dress in layers. Trust no one.

  1. Welcome to Bend, Jack. In these parts we call this kind of weather "unsettled," as in, "The weather will be unsettled for the next week or so."

    "Unsettled" is pretty much synonymous with "shitty."
