Snow & Memorial Day

Well our weather is a bit chilly , yesterday we had a good mix of all weather.

It happened last year too on Memorial Day weekend.

This picture I'm sharing from one of our news channels in Reno. This is at Mt Rose. We had a little snow here on the ground but it didn't last long. It is still chilly & windy here today but should be warming up by Monday.

We didn't have any big plans for the weekend Paul has to work on Monday anyway so I have some craft work to get caught up on. Just a day to spend w/ kids & remember the real reason for the day.

I found this photo on FB & I am also using it for my cover photo. I thought I would share it. I love it so much. I remember as a child going to the parade & hearing them play the Taps at the cemetery , shooting over the graves. I know so many get wrapped up and forget what this weekend is really about.

Two words really sum it all up THANK YOU to all the past , present & future military men & women.

Happy Memorial Day & stay safe everyone.

Thank you indeed to all those who bravely fight for our freedom!!

It seems like when we lived in Montana it was always cold/snowy on Memorial Day. Here too its been a bit cloudy and overcast and cooler than normal. But it sounds like you have a good weekend planned to remember why we celebrate this 3 day weekend! I, like Paul, will also be working come Monday :)

I can't believe the snow. I know my son-in-law is up in Northern CA and there was snow when they arrived late Thursday evening.
Have a wonderful weekend. My thoughts and prayers are with all the families who have lost loved ones while supporting our freedom.
