Snowpack is above normal across almost the entire western US.
April 29 was the 4th coldest on record here in Boulder. Last year was 5th coldest. It was the first time we ever had two consecutive cold April 29th’s in a row.
We had 8 inches of snow on April 29, second largest April 29 snow on record. It snowed last year too.

Well it seems like it snows more in the Spring than it used to.
I just took this picture with a Canon SX-720 pocket camera.
