April Snow in Rochester

words and images copyrighted ©2012 GCheatle

A Spring Snow Storm.  The weather folk say our first major snow storm of the year.  Winter recorded none.  These images show the world outside my Flat here in Rochester western New York – earlier today, Monday April 23.  Heavy wet snow with more predicted for the rest of today.  Forecast up to six inches locally with higher amounts in hills and west.  Messy driving.  Schools closed or with delayed openings.  Downed lines with resultant power outages.

This Spring our weather is a  roller coaster ride.  A week ago Rochester reach record high temperatures.  Flowers and flowering trees abounded.  See my Walk in the Park images – click here to view them.  Freezing and near freezing temperatures for today and tomorrow.  The temperature rises to 60 F on Wednesday.

For now a few more pictures from today.
