Yeah was snowing in Yellowstone today. Spent most of the day in the park and it never got above 5c.

Here's what I woke up to this morning:





Thankfully I wasn't working last night, as I70 was a bit of a mess.

That's Colorado for you. This time last year it was the complete opposite - bone dry conditions and loads of wildfires. Our house was pretty close to getting burned to the ground during one of them.

Saw on one of the lightning tracker apps that there were a few strikes that way, but if I closed and reopened the app, they'd sometimes dissappear.

I'm sure there was at least a flash of lightning Derby way not long ago, definitely followed by thunder, so I'm hoping something is setting up round here, thundery showers are forecast till midday from now anyway.

Nothing since though, which is really annoying me.
