Here in the sunny South Okanagan, it is very rare to have snowstorms after March, though we occasionally get a few flakes fluttering down now and then until late April. But the other day, May 29 to be exact, we had a blizzard of “white stuff!” It was a beautiful sunny late spring afternoon, when suddenly the wind kicked up and, with the sun still bravely shining in a mostly clear blue sky, the flakes were whirling about in every direction! Don’t believe me? Check out this slide show and see for yourself!
What’s that I hear you asking? Those tall trees behind the white house? Cottonwoods, I think. There are loads of them around here. Why do you want to know? Pardon? Cottonwood snow? Really? Well… I guess that could explain why it still hasn’t melted despite the warm temperatures…
