Penny Raking The Trees, Heavy Wet Snow Overnight May 2

 

 
i spoke too soon this is what we woke up to yesterday... we got a foot of snow instead of rain overnight and it bent a lot of trees.
Penny used our roof rake to clear the snow from the lower bows that blocked the driveway...

Nothing halfway about this weather...
....peter:): there was no snow on 3/4 of our yard and the grass was turning green... it's 10°C right now and most of it is melting....petersmile
Oh Peter, c'est tout beau mais pas pour le moi de mai... ici on a eu de la grêle et beaucoup de pluie avec de grands vents... Avril fut terrible, j'espère que mai sera mieux mais il est bien mal parti... Bise à  vous deux, bonne soirée tout en douceur!
....peter:): Je suis d'accord avec Maria-Lina .... aptilwas terrible et ce n'est pas la façon de démarrer le mois de mai ... il est de 10 ° C maintenant, alors la plupart d'entre eux vont fondre bientôt ... Bisous et bon mercredi tous doux ....peter/pierresmile
i cannot imagine this is common on May 2, Peter - even from your part of Canada.
....peter:): we were shocked as well Ayush... we were supposed to get 15 mm of rain and it got cold overnight....petersmile
Oh, my. Wonderful shots but I think you are probably ready for a little green grass.
....peter:): they do make nice pictures Michael and we have got some green grass under this snow....petersmile

It looks wonderful but I think this is not what you had in mind for the beginning of the month of Mai....
....peter:): they do make nice pictures Astrid but is was a shock when we woke up in the morning... it was supposed to be rain overnight....petersmile

Wow! That will set you Spring back a little, Peter.
....peter:): it was a wow situation Ray... it's 10°C right now and most of it is melting soon....petersmile
Ah beautiful!! Spring is always fickle isn't she!
....peter:): it is beautiful Elizabeth... but Spring sure is fickle up here....petersmile

What an overnight shock, Peter. I hope it melts quickly and that you can then get on with your Spring
....peter:): shock is the right to describe for it Lisl... it's 10°C right now and most of it will be melting soon....petersmile
Oh no, just as things were looking good Peter. At first I thought that was you with a long barrelled gun.
....peter:): it's 10°C right now and most of it will be melting soon... i couldn't lift a gun with a barrel that big Chad....petersmile
Strewth that is hardly spring like Peter!
....peter:): it was a surprise to us as well Bill... thanks....petersmile
Chez nous la neige est retombée aussi mais pas aussi bas que mon village mais chez toi c'est vraiment impressionnant. L'hiver est de retour. Bisous à  vous 3
....peter:): Je suis d'accord Marie... avril a été terrible et ce n'est pas la façon de démarrer le mois de mai... il est à 10°C maintenant, alors la plupart du neiges se fondront en un ou deux jours ... Bisous de nous 3....peter/pierresmile

I see you are so shocked, you reverted to old times and immediately set Penny to work ...

Jokes apart - the two bottom pictures are really good.
....peter:): i was shocked and Penny volunteered... i wasn't going to argue with her about it...
the other two shots show just how dense the snow was Louis....petersmile
Oh no! Who needs that in May! The sun will soon be back to melt it and provide some moisture.
....peter:): We sure didn't need it for sure Mary... it's 10°C right now and most of it will be melting soon....petersmile

Oh peter, I can imagine what a surprise this must have been in May - but you might know such a situation. The images are wonderful!
....peter:): we were shocked at how much of this heavy snow fell in one night Philine...
there was no trees that fell on my land so we got lucky... and yes it is very beautiful....petersmile
It looks lovely but not quite what you wanted I guess.
....peter:): it is very beautiful Brian... but completely unexpected.... it was suposed to rain 15 mm overnight....petersmile
We had a cold snap too - but nothing like this, although there were a couple of hail storms - and in the south of England, major damage in vineyards.
....peter:): i would hope that your storm was nothing like this Tom... but hail can cause a lot of damage to young crops in the spring....petersmile

It looks very pretty, although rather deep and inconvenient...
....peter:): it is very pretty Cherie but it causes the trees to bear weight that isn't good for them... some of my neighbours lost one or two large trees....petersmile
Oh yes. Wet, gloppy snow. It can really weigh down the trees. Good for Penny to do the "raking." But that much snow in May??? That's more than ridiculous!
....peter:): that much snow in May is totally ridiculous Ginnie!... Penny saved some of the trees that were bent right across out driveway... out tall Spruce hung in there drooped until the wind picked up to blow the snow off of them....petersmile
