The Bad News And The Good News

Bad news : We are expecting yet another snowstorm in Colorado this week.

Good news : It has been so cold this spring that the cottonwood trees have not leafed out yet. This will minimize tree limb damage from the snow.

    My Azaleas finally bloomed this week. Almost a month later than normal.

    The bad news: I’m in PA and our high is 53 today.

    It is amazing, a May cold snap and snowstorm in the making, probably setting many new records over a widespread area. Definitely consistent with a warming planet (sarc).

    My trees are still barely starting to leaf out. I have a few very puzzled and cold hummingbirds seeking shelter where there is none, yet.

    I moved to Iowa from Boston to iowa in Spring 1978 right after Boston’s February blizzard that closed the city for 2 weeks. In Iowa City that Spring we had 5″ of snow on May 5th. 5 and 5, easy to remember.

    The following winters for the next 10 years were brutal with one 31 day period seeing -25 deg F or lower for 25 of those days and not reaching above zero any of those 31 days. Little snow at all because the air was so dry, but school was closed repeatedly due to the wind chill making standing for a school bus life-threatening. The snow sublimated away over time.

  7. The good news is you remember what snow is. Count your blessings. (And the deer in your yard look better in the snow, I’m sure.)

    If the snow was hitting one day earlier, we’d have a shot at setting the highest April snowfall amount in recorded history for Fort Collins. Instead, looks like we’ll come in 2nd or 3rd (I don’t know where the official station is or what it’s numbers are for April yet).
