The Weather

 

Spring is a season of rebirth when all that’s young in each of us comes to play.

Paradise Valley spring, it’s a season of changeable conditions. Its warm breezes interrupted fitfully by snowy winds. Ice that rims the river breaks away, bobs downstream and disappears. Snowdrifts vaporize and become nothing.

It’s a season of contest between winter’s holdout chills and summer’s advancing warms. The contestants push and shove. It’s warm one day and cold the next.

In early spring winter’s warriors seem to win some skirmishes, but summer’s soldiers always prevails by late spring. Snow is banished to the upper slopes and mountaintops. The valley’s nature softens into moderate days and refreshingly chilled nights as winter loses its hold and spring slides unstoppably toward the waiting summer.
