May Snow

 Generally speaking, around March I usually point out that we still have "one more big snow left."
 
Now, unlike last year, I started to relax when May started. That one more big snow hadn't really happened and it was over 60 outside.
 
However, there's another rule of thumb around here ... Don't plant anything till after Mother's Day. Reaching May doesn't mean you're safe yet.
 
Enter today.
 
 
 
Right this moment, there are about seven inches of snow on my deck. And it's nowhere near done yet.
 
 
All the more impressive since the first two to three inches melted as fast as they fell. Our road is pure mud under the snow.
 
 
It's very pretty. It's just ... a bit out of season.
 
Just for fun -- this was taken ten years ago this weekend.
 

Go May.
