    While growing up in northern New York right next to Lake Ontario I had snow on my birthday which at the end of May.
    It was 43 and rainy there today.
    The very reason I have lived in Florida for 35 years.

    I remember getting 8" of snow on Mother's Day many years ago.

    It happens. No one likes it, but it happens.

    Not particularly out of the ordinary for the northern climes. Back in the early 2000's (can't remember the year) we drove to Yellowstone for Memorial Day weekend. It snowed on us halfway across the state and when we drove through the park, the lakes at higher elevations were still frozen over.

    At various times, Wyoming has recorded snow in every month of the year.

    In Western New York in the early 70's we had snow on the Fourth of July and the temp was in the 80's. I was playing baseball. At first I thought it was ash, but it was snow. It only lasted a few minutes, but I'll never forget it.

    It happens. I live in Utah. This time of the year, the temps can be a roller coaster. Last week we were in the 30s. Yesterday in the 80s. The rest of the week we should be about 60. I remember having snow as late as June in the past.

    My brother runs a snow plow business and the other day he was a happy guy. It was 90 here, I won't trade places with him :)

    Mrs. COGatorman and I spent our first Indepedence Day in Colorado tent camping in Buena Vista and woke up with a couple inches of snow weighing on the tent roof!

    Northern MN here: today the snow in our back yard was finally totally melted. Then we had a pretty wild hail storm. It's white again! o_O

    We actually got some snow here in Arizona yesterday. No joke. Flagstaff is 7,000 feet above sea level and they got a dusting from a storm that moved through. And the top of Mount Humphreys (12,600 feet) had a nice cap on it.

    My parents live on Monument Hill just north of Colorado Springs and they're expecting 8-15 inches.

    We would have had at least eight inches so far, but fortunately it's mostly melted on contact. That being said, it wasn't any fun changing a flat in the middle of it.

    Wow - I'm glad to know others are not without their winter challenges. We live in pretty much the coldest region of North America and get a boat load of snow (125" this year). It's all finally melted the last couple of days. My snow blower is officially "summerized" as of today. :)

    I am picking blueberry's from my yard, the avocado tree is loaded with small fruit and the mango tree as well. Planning to plant two more mango's as soon as I finish cutting the bougainvillea back since it has already flowered a month ago and is losing its blooms.

    The snow birds have left for summer now that the gulf is warm enough to swim in for us Florida types.
    My only complaint is having to use sun screen on a daily basis. Snow blowers, never seen one.
