Late Snow

The snowfall this week in many locations brings questions about late season snow events.  Not getting April snow is what is unusual, not recording it.  In recent days, some areas recorded zero snow, some location just some flakes in the air that melted on contact, but other areas recorded several inches.  Back in 2008, Fargo Moorhead recorded 9 inches of snow on April 24 and 25 the heaviest snow so late in the season.  Granted that much snow tends to be bit unusual this time of year, but generally what has been occurring the past couple of days and even today in some locations if we want to admit it or not, is just part of the joys of living here.
