It's snowing

Has been since noon today. We need the moisture so badly, so I'm not going to complain. Summer break starts next week. Love it!

Any other states get snow besides CO?

No snow in Chicagoland, but we went from 85 degrees down to 65 in a few hours and are expecting thunderstorms.

Wow! I thought it was going to be a post about flower blossoms adrift on a spring breeze. Quite a different picture!

You’re right to look on it as a good thing—much-needed moisture.

eliza, I'm in CO, too. Had our end of year picnic planned for today. Needless to say, it didn't happen. Maybe Monday...

I am just glad you are getting moisture. We all need it so badly!

It was a giant sized surprise to see though.

Oh my word…I can’t imagine. Last one of the season?

I'm not amused. I caved and turned my heat on. Our HS graduation is this weekend, and now has of course been moved inside. I feel sorry for them. Their high school experience was ruined by a pandemic and then on top of it they don't even get the nice graduation ceremony? Feels like a slap in the face.

And before this snow, I was thinking that I don't remember it being this hot so soon either (for those wondering, yesterday it was 88). I always feel like there is this time in May/June in CO where I think, "You know, one could really live here without A/C, it doesn't actually get that hot" and then BAM July hits and I remember. This year I've already had the A/C running for weeks!

Wow! Snow in late April/early May I get (and have seen in a few places I've lived). But late May?

Is it still snowing? How much did you end up getting?

Depends on the area. 12 inches where I live.

I'm actually really thankful. The sun is slowly peeking out and the snow is falling from the trees.

I know NM has already had fires, too. I really wouldn't mind a rainy summer. Would it be ideal for vacations, etc.? No. But, the drought is very real.

Looks like we got 7 inches. I'm going to the movies on the other side of the city this afternoon, so I purposefully ran an errand this morning to check how the roads are. Thankfully they're just wet, since I guess they were so warm to begin with. But there are giant downed tree limbs EVERYWHERE. It's so sad. Probably every tree in my neighborhood is ruined. Lots of people still without power too. Thankfully mine was only flickering last night and is on currently.
