April *snow* showers

We've been having a very cold, snowy spring that feels like an extra long winter.  I live in Minnesota, so I'm sure some of you think I'm asking for it, but trust me, it's not always this bad.

Last spring was amazing, we didn't get any snow after February and we were on the boat by the end of March.  The lake is still very frozen this year and we've had tons of snow in APRIL!  

Anyways, although I'm obviously bitter about spring being delayed, I will admit that the snow can be beautiful.  Here are some photos I took yesterday, trying to see the bright side.

It was way too cold out (at least for April when it should be 60) so I took all the pictures from inside my house or my car in the last picture.  

And it should be in the 70s by Friday... yay spring!

I live in Colorado and we've been experiencing the same thing. It's completely throwing me off too because I keep thinking it's February and it BLOWS MY MIND May is next week.

Beautiful pictures! Can't believe that so many are still experiencing snow. Completely blows my mind!

It's been super gorgeous in the Bay Area lately, but I have to admit these pictures make me a little jealous of snow!

Jenny, I feel you! We've had a terribly long winter in Alberta, too, with snow in April! Finally it's melting and we're getting some warmer weather but it snowed just last weekend. Thank God it didn't last long! I hope we don't see that white stuff for a long time!

Wow! Apart from it being cold, at least you have something pretty to look at. :-)
