The Snows of May

The weather in Colorado can be unpredictable. This is especially true if you live in the Rockies in the northwest corner of the state. In fact, they have a saying around here that if you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes. I usually roll my eyes whenever I hear someone say that. It’s one of those sayings that has been out-said. Unfortunately, this stupid phrase is the best way to describe the weather that we have been experiencing the past couple of weeks. We have had precipitation in all its forms; rain, sleet, hail and snow. There have been brief moments of sunshine followed by house rattling winds.

If you look closely you can see signs that Spring is actually here. The Hummingbirds are buzzing around the feeder and don’t even seem to be bothered by the icicles (photo credit: phrog). The grass is turning green, the trees are budding, and the Daffodils have bloomed (and have now been pummeled into submission). Now I’m hoping that Mother Nature stops with Her shenanigans and gets down with some blue skies, sunshine, and temperatures above 70.

Summer around here is short enough as it is.
