It sounds like something one of your grandparents would say: I remember when it snowed during the second week of May.
But it wasn’t that long ago when it snowed in May in southern New England. It was last year, in fact. It was overnight May 8 into May 9, to be more specific. That’s exactly one year ago today (at the time of this posting, anyway.)
Granted, it wasn’t a big snow and what little covered the ground was gone by mid-morning, but still …
Here are a few photos I took the morning of May 9, 2020. I may never see a blue-winged warbler in snow again. And that would be just fine with me.
