It’s May 11. It’s Mother’s Day. It’s snowing.
That’s Colorado for you. Winter Storm Warning on Mother’s Day. They’ve been telling us for days. This will be a heavy, wet spring snow. Forecasts vary wildly because that’s the way it is here. There could be several feet in the mountains and only a few inches here. Or a foot in southwest Denver, near the mountains, and only a few inches out here in the far northeast metro. The latest information says five to ten inches possible here, and the meteorologists sound pretty sure of themselves.
My lawn desperately needs moisture — the yard man hasn’t gotten here yet to turn on the sprinkler system. But snow on almost fully leafed-out trees and shrubs … lots of potential damage. Not to mention three nights of freezing temperatures. We’ve been warned. And I have my trusty extendable duster ready to knock off accumulating snow if necessary.
Happy Mother’s Day!
