A Broken Record?

5:30 AM

Do I sound like a broken record yet?  This is seeming to be a weekly happening here in Denver.  This is what we woke up to on the first day of May!  
When I got home late from work Wednesday night I'd say we had about five inches of snow.  It is a very wet and heavy snow.  Luckily the trees don't have leaves yet.  That would be a  mess.  But it's cold again, 25 degrees on the way home.  I'm hoping the cold doesn't harm my fruit trees.  The snow won't stick around.  I'm guessing most of it will be gone tomorrow.  We do desperately need the moisture so maybe this will help the wildfire situation later in the summer.

This isn't the latest it has snowed in Denver.  I grew up in the mountains outside of Boulder and can remember when I was in the 7th grade we got three feet of snow on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend.  The news the Tuesday night said the latest it has snowed was in the 1940 and it was on June 4th!  Now that is springtime in the Rockies!

  5. It seems like so many places have been having those freak snow storms! It has been monsoon season here in the south, it is pretty yucky out. Hopefully spring has reached you by now!
