Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow in May - and it did!

While the weather in my neck of the woods yesterday consisted of dreary drizzle and dampness followed by tremendously loud thunder - another weather pattern developed over the Smoky Mountains. Yes, just a stones throw over to the Smoky Mountains where the high peak known as Mt. LeConte received more than six inches of snow the last I heard. I am not sure what the temperature was/is up there, but I know it is chilly in my backyard and the fog is fogging up my brain! Hopefully the rain is over and the sun will be out and stay out for this week with no rain until maybe Friday. We need to dry out, we need to get the pool open!

It's still beautifully warm here but the farmers are beginning to wish for rain.

We got quite a bit of rain yesterday. Thankfully, the sun was out for a little while. Now, it's cloudy and raining again. I am looking forward to getting some sun.

It's kind of chilly right now with the winds. There have been times here in MI that it has snowed in May.

This is a first in my time in the south. And right now we need a winter coat on where two days ago it was mid 80s..Must be an alternative weather pattern.

The temp dropped considerably, it was low 50's here in the valley - and the top of Mt. LeConte is pretty high and the clouds were low and the temp was low - equals snow. It's the first time I remeber snow in May in TN.

Same kind of weather it snowed on the hills around here, but we only had a downpour, no more snow. This month of May is depressing.

@AbbyGreenhill I hope too, I wonder if humans have tried to manipulate the weather and this is the result.

@LadyDuck I wouldn't doubt it! There has to be some reason even if the weatherman can't explain it.

In contrary we have the opposition of your weather. In here, it is so hot, so intense that you want to take a bath 5 times a day.

The weather here in Oregon, is nice and sunny. We have had lots of rain, and finally, the sun is shining again. Here in Oregon, once the rain stops, it stays stopped all through summer and rains like crazy in the fall. I wish there was a happy medium, but unfortunately there isn't. I am just glad that it is finally sunny, as we sure have been needing it

@AbbyGreenhill We have a drought every summer, as the grass turns completely brown. We need more rain then, than we do now, a I am having a hard time now, trying to keep it short enough, as it just grows so fast.. Don't get me wrong, I love the sunshine, but not everyday all summer and not get any rain at all. I hope it changes this summer. Only time will tell.

I awoke to rain this morning in Southern California. When is it a good weather time to visit Tennessee?

Normally by the end of the month we will be in the 90's and that goes on until September - so if you don't like heat and humidity, then October/November is the best time. Spring is ok except for the possible tornado risks. And it depends on which part of TN.

We have the opposite weather. We are having a hard time here in getting a good sleep because of the hot weather. If you go out during daytime and the sun is up, you will feel as if you are being burned.
