SNOW!!! in May

We got hammered with snow last night. About 10" on the ground on this side of town. Not a tree in sight that isn't damaged. Front yard looks like a bomb went off. Neighbors ash split trunk almost to the ground. On either side a cottonwood and maple that are shredded. Looks like my 2 locust may be OK. Maple pretty rough but savable. 3 apple, 1 ash look like they may be gone. 20 lilac and forsythia smashed but at least they can recover.
We were just about finished cleaning up customers conifers that were damaged in April storm.

Well guess I wont be doing my aerations today.

I hear ya Bob. Not much snow down here in the C. Springs area, but very cold. I know I am going to have many clients in the Monument area and others that are high in elevation that will have frozen copper or blown bonnets on the sprinkler system.

The joys of spring in Colorado. It looks like we may be back to our normal weather patterns with cold and snow in April/May, afternoon thunderstorms with occasional hail, tornado warnings, lots of lightning. Might be a sign of the drought coming to an end.

We're not having droughts, snow or tornados. We're having rain. Every day. We wake up in the morning and we have had fog and heavy dew every night. And then just as soon as the grass starts to dry out it rains again. If we aren't rained out completely we're getting 5 maybe 6 hours a day to cut grass. Since Monday we've had 2 rainouts and 3 really wet days. The yards are starting to turn to mud pits.
