    SOB, it snowed again.

    I know it's a 1st world problem. I awake this morning to see a layer of snow/slush just deep enough to make the morning commute an adventure. Took the studded tires off last weekend, and didn't really need them today, but I'm wondering how far into April we'll go before I'm completely convinced the snow is done for this last winter.

    We had a mess too. I drove and regretted it all day. I drove home in beautiful 60 degree sunshine.
    I hope winter is done with us now.

    I rode my road bike in to work today - no snow but 28 and windy. Melting run off that froze overnight made for some sketchy moments. Ride home will be worse. 15 miles into the wind and I left me music home Riding against wind is 87% worse without music. Hope you get that snow melted - here there is still foot or so but roads clear for now.

    It's not over yet! I put in a special request for more snow, and this morning there was...snow!

    It wasn't enough for shoveling or fun riding, but it was enough to keep the springtime cyclists off the streets. I hate to admit it, but it was kind of nice to have the roads to myself again.

    Give it a rest, ya whiners! The average date of last measurable snow fall in Denver is April 26th. The latest measurable snowfall is June 12 (1947). From NOAA

    Date of Last Measurable Snow Last 10 Years:
    May 2, 2013
    April 3, 2012
    May 11, 2011
    May 12, 2010
    April 27, 2009
    May 14, 2008
    April 14, 2007
    May 10, 2006
    May 2, 2005
    April 30, 2004

    And if you look down at the list of largest snowstorms in Denver, we could still get 15"+ at the end of April. We still have a month of winter to look forward to.

    Enjoy your May snowstorm! Hopefully, you can get a ride in before it melts...
