Alternate Title: I Kid You Not
Alternate Title: Spring? Yeah right.

If you've read my blog anytime during the month of April, you know that it was a snowy month. It's weird, but it's normal.
I just came in from checking the mail. Given my OCD tendencies, it's surprising that I'm not a check-the-mail-every-day kind of girl, but I'm not. Anyway, I spotted the May edition of our local community newspaper in the stack of mail and I anxiously flipped through it until I found my favorite part--the monthly weather wrap feature. A local meteorologist writes an article listing all the weather statistics from the previous month, and I find it highly interesting. So interesting, in fact, that I thought I'd share it here.
Ready for these April stats?
High temp (April 23): 73 degrees
Low temp (April 6): 2 degrees (that's quite a span, huh?)
Monthly snowfall: 54.9 inches
Let me say that again. 54.9 inches. In April.
Our snow is measured from July 1-June 30. Our season to date snowfall is 131.9 inches which means that more than thirty percent of that snow fell in APRIL.
Isn't that crazy??????????
