We thought it was spring too.  When the rain came through Saturday it was 47 degrees.  Reports at the time from the Porch said it was snowing in Marfa.  Its supposed to be over 100 degrees Wednesday.

We got snow during my trip to the Grand Canyon to hike the Tanner trail this past week. Here's a pic of a light dusting of snow at Kolb Studio:

I'm working on a trip report to post.  The weather was a wide range of extremes.  90F at Tanner beach, mid 20's near Lipan Point at the top.

Another pic of sleet/snow mix moving in towards us.  Looking down 75 mile canyon:
