Flatirons Locksmiths: Snow in May in Boulder Colorado…

Snow in May in ColoradoSo if April showers bring May flowers, what does snow in May bring? It’s May 1st here in Boulder Colorado and we have snow on the ground. It’s not unheard of that we would get snow here in May but actually on May 1st is quite unique. I have even known us to get snow in June but that is very rare. I am not talking about the mountains, this is snow in the plains, the mountains can get snow though June and start getting snow falling in September again.

The weather here in Colorado is absolutely amazing, while we have had a very mild winter here, we have had a steady, almost weekly snow fall all spring. This snow is typically very wet and if it is cold at the same time, can freeze very easily and cause quite a lot of damage especially to trees and weak structures. You have to be very careful while driving if the snow is sticking to the roads as it will turn to ice very quickly, especially on cement roads. Personally, I think cement roads should be banned in Colorado as the ice formation is horrendous and extremely dangerous. I see cars off the roads all the time on cement roads and not so much on asphalt roads. The worst thing is when cops write you a ticket for careless driving when you were very careful and the cement was just sheet ice. All this just to say “Be careful on the roads!”

Anyway, I digress. this is supposed to be a post about the wonderful snow fall we have here on May 1st. The truly remarkable thing about it is that just two days ago it was 70 degrees and we were in shorts and have the sunburn marks to prove it! This is that not uncommon either as I can remember just a few years ago getting snow storm after snow storm all winter long and in between it would be in the 70’s and we would be in shorts in between these very big snows. You have got to love Colorado weather! After all, they do say here that if you don’t like the weather outside, wait about 5 minutes…
