May 22, 2015 – Crestone Photos – May 2015 Wettest on Record

Just a couple photos from this morning, by the kiosk parking area where T Road curves into Crestone, Southern Colorado (Elevation 8,000 feet, nearby mountains go up to around 14,000 ft.).  You can see how much snow is still accumulating higher up.  Yesterday was another afternoon with showers, turning into another night of pouring rain, followed by a glorious morning.  It’s been exceptionally wet and cold for this time of the year.   Record breaking, apparently, see further below.  (To be honest, sleeping in a tent and such, I’m ready for summer…)

About 9:09 am Mountain Time, May 22, 2015:

Via my Meteo page:  Local weatherman Keno, (Annotated Screenshot May 22, 2015) has issued another Special Weather Statement.   This follows, May 10, 2015’s  May Snowfall Record Broken: 40 cm (16″) of Fresh Snow !
