Default Snow, May 2015

While the rest of the country enjoys spring time weather, I've had an inch of snow fall since 6am this morning and 11 more inches forecasted to fall before tomorrow night.

Last winter's last snowfall (where I'm located in the Northern Black Hills) was May 8th.

If power is lost, I'm ready for that too.

12" as of this morning and it's still coming down. It's super wet and when plowed or shoveled retains a blue tint showing off how wet the underside is.

I'd prefer snow to tornadoes. We just got thunderstorms this time.

I had no idea Delmont got hit by a tornado until reading the newspaper yesterday. Wow.....pretty extreme range of weather events there - snow in the western half of the state and tornadoes on the eastern half, all at the same time.

Snow in the mountains in May is common in any western state. Mammoth, CA got 18 inches 3 days ago.
I moved to Nevada from Wyoming. It snowed on Memorial Day and I thought it was unusual, until it happened two years in a row. With some elevation, it can snow in any month.

We are supposed to get snow up the hill from us for the next couple days at 5000'+. We have been snowed on at 6000' in early June before. That was a cold night in the tent.

Yeah that's weird but here in Texas we have had flash floods and tornadoes, unusual weather this year for a lot of states. I haven't been able to plant our garden the ground is so dang saturated and it would die with all this water.

No snow out east, but the hail killed my cucumbers and melons.

That's my worry, the trees had already gone into bloom because of all of the nice weather we had leading up to this storm. I'm afraid several of them might die or go back into winter dormancy because of the heavy snow. Several got bent over to the point they were partially buried in snow drifts.

Reminds me of hiking Desolation in june/july and waking up to snow....

Sierras are a wonderfully dangerous place to hike....

The Sierras are easy and forgiving compared to the Rockies and the Cascades.

It started snowing again this morning around 7am. It was on & off all day and I now have about 1 inch accumulation with no snow forecast for tomorrow after 4am.

The previous snow had all melted within a week of the storm. Hopefully this round will be gone by the weekend.

I had to haul all my plants inside for the frost last night, then we didn't get one.
