Well we have a saying in Missouri, if your not happy with the weather hang on and it will change. After several days in the 80's Mother Nature surprised us with rapid temperature drops, sleet, heavy winds and rain then 3 inches of snow. But it happened in May! Last year we had a record number of days above 100 degrees. 2012 started out warmer then normal after a mild winter, followed by over a year of next to no rain. The Winter of 2012 gave us 3 snow storms in month, 1 storm gave us 12 inches of snow and the other 2 gave us 15 inches plus, EACH! We have had more rain in the last month then all of the last year. So here we are in May and we get a snow storm. I love it here.
