    Things are warming up a lot here. Our temperatures were about 65 here. We had a high of 29 on Sunday. Denver was 27 degrees on Sunday. Denver hasn't had a high temperature of 27 or lower since February 22nd, 2018. Great Falls MT was warmer than Brownsville TX today Yesterday, Edmonton, Canada area was 70-74 and Brownsville TX was 63. Texas has really been socked in with cool weather. The Midland-Odessa area was 42 degrees on Tuesday afternoon. They haven't had a high of 42 or lower since February 21st, 2018. That was 8 months ago.

    Fort Collins just had a record low of 12 degrees yesterday. Interestingly, the electronic thermometer at CSU had a low of 14.0 instead of 12. This thermometer is just a few feet away from the analog thermometer used for the official measurements.

    My area got 5.5" of snow on Saturday and Sunday. There were some 6-7" from Fort Collins and Boulder, 4-6" in Cheyenne, and something like 2" for Denver. There were a large number of places across the northern plains that got over 1", which is pretty impressive for lower elevations at this time of year.

    My area is getting the storm now. The temperature has fallen to 30 quickly. We have some snow accumulation of 1/2" or less, with 20-30mph wind gusts (gust to 36mph at Fort Collins-Loveland Airport)

    Here is a silver maple tree in Colorado. We had one like this in Ohio. Not too many maples are in the cities in Colorado. The hardwoods of the East are uncommon for the dry western climates.

    Silver maple leaves on a bright, sunny day! There have been so few moments with blue skies and sun since the leaves turned.

    With the snow and the cold coming up here, the trees might drop their leaves before you can appreciate them.

    This is looking better as far as getting precipitation in this state. The western areas have done pretty well. Fort Collins and Loveland have gotten 0.6" or better. I got 0.65" at my place this month, including that snow that melted on contact. The snow happened for a number of hours on Wednesday, but didn't accumulate. Coming up this weekend - accumulating snow!! I think it's a little too early for this.

    We are getting our first snowfall. Right now there are decent size clumps of flakes. At the same time as a kick-butt hurricane landfall. I hope everybody is OK in Florida.
