So I think that Denver is done with any meaningful snow accumulation for the season, and I’m going to de-winterize our sprinkler system. Who wants a piece of the action?
It’s snowing today. Right now. As I write this. Wednesday afternoon, May 12, 2010.
Folks, it’s April 14. I realize it may still snow this year, but still… Studded snow tires on your cars? Really? It’s time to take them off, people.
Speak not of Sultry Spring lest Father Frost return, his icy fingers outstretched, blanketing us once more in his crystalliferous call.
It’s snowing. In Denver. Right now.
It’s thundersnowing. Right now. In Lakewood. No, I’m not making this up.
It started with a very light snowfall. Then there was an incredibly bright flash of light that lit up the sky, like someone standing outside my window with a camera flash. Then about 5 seconds later, a huge, KA-BOOOM! It happened a few more times and it’s now more like sleet. But not really. I think the correct precipitation is “snow pellets.” So I guess it should be called thundersnowpelleting instead.
21:36 – Now the Lakewood Police are reporting they can’t get up the hills because it’s “like an ice rink” out there.
This is the fifth weekend in a row it’s snowed in Denver. I’m tired of snow. I want it to go away. I want to be able to wash my car, which once was silver. It is now dirt colored. I want to be able to walk from point A to point B without needing ice cleats. I don’t want to shovel again.
