Snow in the open melted yesterday.

Snow in the shade still here for a few more hours.

Yes, it's beautiful today and looking so Springy! The trees seem to be about 3 weeks ahead of the usual schedule though. I have this (I think) ornamental plum tree that normally blooms with very sweet-smelling flowers right at my boys' birthday in early May, but it's starting to bloom and I could smell the scent a little this morning. It almost smells like orange blossoms.

Okay, so I woke up Sunday morning to about half an inch of snow. My car was mostly covered and this was about 7am. I noticed driving to Sheridan and 285, that there was hardly any trace that it had snowed, while closer to where I live you could see the snow in patches in the grass by 8:30am. I drove to Red Rocks and definitely saw more snow cover, looked like an inch, inch and half? Green Mountain looked all snow covered as well. So I'm gonna go with these stats:

Stats: inch of snow
STD: 88 inches

Do you believe that this might have been our last snowfall of the season?

P.S. It snowed again briefly Sunday night for about 20 minutes. Big Flaky snow, but no accumulation.

Yeah, it snowed down here Saturday night, about 1/2 inch of wet/heavy. Enough to scrape off the car windows for the middle of the night trip over to Village Inn.

Gone by at least 10 am Sunday (probably melted much earlier).

Stats:
SEASON-TO-DATE snowfall: 74.5 inches
Snow cover days: 83
Snow cover in the shade days: 146

I never saw any snow over the weekend. I was up at dawn Sun. morning and it was just wet outside. But the moisture has sure greened everything up.

I'm hoping that was it. No more snow... come on Summer

Okay gang, get your last comments in so we can close this thread and look forward to next winter's weather woes.

The recent winter has been a let down for snow lovers, that's for sure.

How was it a let down? There was snow on the ground from the beginning of December to early March?

But if you close this, you know it'll snow again for sure

At least in the mountains it has been a terrible let down. Not only were skiers affected, but paddling sports will suffer this summer as well due to very low water levels on creeks/rivers. Denver did well over average as far as snowfall though. Right now in the mountains there is less than 50% of the normal snow on the ground.

True... and we don't capture our water down here. Better to have the reverse situation.
