Almost Wordless Wednesday: Snow, Rhubarb and the Catskill Mountains

Snow, Rhubarb and the Catskill Mountains

 

We were in the Catskills in Roxbury NY this past weekend visiting family for a wedding, and despite being the middle of May the weather was pretty winter-like, with temps one day in the high 30s and heavy snow flurries both Saturday and Sunday.

From this Southern California guy there were plenty of words! The views were pretty nice, however.

Jeff, we have had rain for the past 2 weeks with cold temps...looking forward to some sunshine next week.  I bet you were glad to get home :)

Well I wasn't pleased, but knowing that it was not going to last long, and we were there to visit with family, made it all worthwhile. But I sure didn't epect that cold and snow!

Thanks for stopping by. This was a classic large farmhouse with great views to the south from inside but especially from the front porch. Fun pace to visit, despite the cold and snow...and no Internet!!

I was certainly surprised, but my sister-in-law who lives there says this is common. We flew over a bunch of mountains on the way back west with lots of snow!

Yes, the weather in NY is a little different than California, and this year it's unusually cooler...

Hi Jeff.  Thanks for the pictures.  I have some very fond and distant memories of some summers in the Catskills.

Jeff, I don't believe that many parts of the Catskills have changed much since we used to go there in the 1950's. I have two pictures hanging over my fireplace painted by my uncle of scenes in the Catskills and I suspect an artist would find places just like it today to paint.

Hi Jeff, I'll bet you were freezing. You So Cal folks are quite fortunate to have such mild weather most of the time. But as you mention, there are certainly trade offs. :)

It seems like lots of places are still having some pretty cold weather, and lots of rain. Yep, I was glad to get home, for a number of reasons.

That's what I've heard. It was pretty cool when I was in Washington DC last week, too! We're spoiled here in SoCal!!

Thanks. It's interesting that I have now heard from several people who have memories of time in the Catskills, and they live nowhere near there now

That was my impression. I did not notice much new building in the areas I was at, although I did note a few pretty specactular homes on the muntains that were new and clearly had fantastic views. Now if the area could just do a better job on cell service!! LOL

It WAS cold and we were not really prepared in terms of clothing. It certainly gets that cold where we are in SoCal but only in the winter at night. We are indeed lucky with the weather we have most of the time. Having been away from New England for 11 years I am spoiled with good weather! But it was all worth it to spend time with family and all the nieces and nephews!

Jeff Dowler CRS ~ hi Jeff... I have a cousin who's lived there for years and the economy is pretty depressed as is real estate. Once her husband died she would have been happy to sell their home, but no go.

Thanks. It was a good combination of real estate business for 4 days, more travel, and 2 full days with family.

This is much further north than my part of New York. This weekend we will be seeing temps up to 90 degrees. Wish you dropped by our part of New York while you here Jeff Dowler CRS

It was great fun to visit with family and to enjoy our niece's wedding. The cold and snow? Not so enjoyable, but we got to leave it behind!

Hi Janis Borgueta 

I thought about it but we came through the area from Boston fairly late, and on the way back had to catch a plane in Boston. But I thought of you and waved both directions!!
