From Summer To Winter In A Day

Last weekend in Colorado they ended up with 3-feet of spring. Well, here we are on Thursday. The day started out fairly nice and got up to around 50°F earlier in the day. However, it didn't take long and by noon we had snow flying and the temperatures dropped to around 32°F. Don't know of too many other places in the U.S. that we can go from Summer most of the week to Winter in under a days time. I figure we ended up with approximately 1" of snow altogether. Tough to fully know for sure other than with the measured moisture content, due to melting. But I did snap a couple of pics to show we did get some snow this afternoon.
