The Never Ending Winter...

Pikes Peak today as seen from a neighborhood walking path

We had a substanial frost last night and some areas of town experienced snow. Pikes Peak has seen more snow than any season since at least 1993, and there is a chance for more through the weekend. We've been in a drought for so long, that nobody's used to this. There were seven consecutive weekends of snow this winter. Either highly unusual, or we've just forgotten what a real winter is like. Whichever, I'm tired of it and ready for some warm weather. For the month of May we have had over 4 1/2 inches of rain. That's Colorado for you. Wide swings in temperature and crazy extremes. Certainly doesn't get boring! Come hell or high water, I'm planting my annuals this weekend.
