This past week we had beautiful weather for 4 days in a row. With "Spring" here, the days are very, very long up in the alpine. The light hits some of the zones starting at 6:30am, and you can stay out shooting till 7 or a bit later to get sunset glows.
After a few days like that, the poor weather is a welcome change. Not to mention it brings more snow up high to play in on the next sunny break!
