Springtime in Wadena (Part II)

Two months ago, it would seem that I announced the arrival of spring to the Staples Subdivision prematurely.

On my way home from this week's road trip, a westbound coal empty coordinated its arrival at the Wadena interlocking with my own arrival at the First Street crossing. What better time to capture the flavor of early May here in Wadena?

No, that's not plain old Pentax noise in the photo. It's honest to goodness snow, and when I pulled up at home just a few minutes after snapping this picture, it was barely beginning to stick to the grass and still falling. The weatherman doesn't seem to think we'll get MUCH snow. That's heartening thought, as we sit here contemplating Mom's Day.
