May Snow

It started snowing at our house this morning after a night of rain.

Most people I know complain about this weather in May. Personally I like the fact that we can get snow this late in the year. It is certainly better than living someplace with no snow. Plus we keep hearing how dry this summer is expected to be so any moisture we get at all is a good thing.

Of course, in a couple of weeks we are going camping at Rocky Mountain National park. I do not want the weather to be cold and rainy then. If was just me, I would love camping in the snow. I think even just me and Tyler would have fun. But Tracy and Connor are not camp-in-snow kind of people. Connor is just a bit young and gets to the "I want to go home." chant too easily. Tracy, although she does not really complain and claims to be having fun is just too much of a girl to enjoy non-perfect weather camping.

By the way, I like that she is a girl.

Back to today's weather: between yesterday and today we went from mid to high 70s to what should be a high of 35 or 40 today. Crazy. Part of the complaint around here is that such a swing is hard to handle. It is hard to know how to dress; people claim temperature swings cause sickness; etc.... Again, I think this is part of what is so great about living here. These sort of people do not complain when we get gorgeous warm winter weather the next day after a winter snow.

I would not be surprised if this is the last snow we get this year. Crazy weather. I wonder if this is part of global warming.

One thing I do not like about this weather is how hot they keep the train. Holy cow I am burning up on the light rail.
