spring snowstorm rolled through Wednesday morning. About 2am I was up
and noticed a light rain outside. Seeing outside again at 8am, there
was 12" of snow on the ground - and sticking to many vertical surfaces.
It is a great snowball / snowman packing snow!
Yesterday, on the drive from Illinois, I had the air conditioning on in the car. Temps outside hit 70F. A great spring day. Less than 24 hours later - a heavy blanket of white.
I well enjoy the spring snows of this region. Warm temps one day with a clean coating of white the next. With warm temps the norm, the new coat will melt away in short order.

|Passing under a highway info sign - impending storm on the way.
With the warm temps, the windshield is coated in bug spats - a first for the coming summer season.
|Heavy wet snow sticking to the door.
|While high winds were from the North, many faces of vertical walls were coated with sticky snow.
|LED stop light lamps - They do not dissipate enough heat energy to melt snow... Look thrice and move slowly.
road - power lines downed but more trucks are needed to extract the
chained up power company trucks from the snow filled ditch.
