Had our latest accumulating snow of the season this morning since 2013 (beating last year's 4/17 winter storm that dropped 7" of snow). We only managed to accumulate about 2-2.5" on most surfaces, but it was enough to weigh the trees down and cause me to lose power for several hours. I have a feeling if this had all fallen overnight, we would have easily double that. Either way it makes for an amazing spring morning. It will likely be all melted by afternoon due to the late April sun angle. Here are some photographs I shot around 8am this morning:
