Michigan, Random Ramblings

Snow? In May? Only in Michigan!

Yesterday, we had pellets of hail the size of Rice Krispies.  This morning, we woke up to a gentle dusting of snow covering the pretty faces of our May flowers.

Hubby took a quick pic when we let the dog out.

Snow May 15, 2016

I think Mother Nature is becoming forgetful in her dotage.  Perhaps she needs a calendar.



Yes…they both begin with the letter M, but there is a slight difference between the two months.

  1. We’ve had snow too in the UK, both in April and the beginning of May, followed by soaring temperatures, quickly followed by lower than average temperatures for the time of year. S’now joke when you’re trying to grow summer plants 😉

    1. Weatherman said we *might* see “patchy frost” in a few areas. Glad I brought in my flowering plants yesterday! I debated on putting them in the ground last week…but I wasn’t quite sure if the weather would hold. Glad I followed my gut! 🙂

    1. I remember MANY Easter Sundays, standing outside for pictures in extra frilly Easter clothing, sporting blue legs and fingers from not being dressed warm enough for the weather! LOL Nothing like an Easter egg hunt in the snow! Ah…memories!!! 🙂


        1. Sure! 🙂 There’s always an excuse to drag out the camera. If I waited for good weather, I’d never take any pics!

          In the winter around here, we’ve had snowfall as high as the roof of my car, In the summer, we get temps that are so hot and humid, it feels like a sauna, like you’re trying to breathe though your bath water. Spring and summer can be ANYTHING in between. I’ve seen all four seasons in a single week. It sounds silly, but I’ve got pictures of my family wearing t-shirts while there’s still snow on the ground. The temps went up faster than the snow could melt. Crazy stuff! The weather changes THAT dramatically between March through April. We’re surrounded by The Great Lakes in Michigan. It really makes for some odd weather conditions, but most of the time, we just roll with it. You learn to dress in layers. 🙂
