May 25: Snow Melt

What's the deal with snow in late May?

Wet heavy snow coated the neighborhood, snapping off branches on the bigger trees. I measured one broken limb with a 10" diameter. Yikes.

Our crab apple tree is limber lumber compared to the old oaks.

Watch it pick itself up off the grass.
Awaken from hibernation.
Shake off the snow.
Rise to meet the sun.
Welcome in Spring.
etc etc etc.
Choose your own personification if you like.
