Skywatch Friday - May Snow

Most of the year we have beautiful weather here in Colorado. But it can be very unpredictable - 60 degrees F (16 C) in January and snow in May. For my Skywatch Friday posts, I try not to post the boring pictures of blue skies, but instead the more interesting skies when it snows or rains. And this week's pictures are of some snow we received this past Sunday, May 2. First is the gray/white sky with snow starting to stick to a pine tree behind our house, then the threatening clouds after the snow, and finally snow on a pine tree.

  1. Wow. I have so many memories of the oddities of Colorado Springs weather ... much different than here in Oregon.

    I remember a Friday with 18 inches of snow on the ground ... and a BBQ on Sunday with 70 degrees!

    Beautiful snow pictures. sigh.

  14. Great shots. Nature is loosing grip on the climate. In Europe it snowed in France and Spain this week where it is supposed to be at least 25C.

  15. The weather has been unpredictable everywhere this year. However, your part of the world is noted for a lot of snow. My niece has a cabin near Hartsel and they are going this month to open it for the spring. They may have a hard time doing so.
