Snow in April - no foolin'

In all the years I have lived in the Metro Vancouver area, I have never seen snow after St. Patrick's Day. I remember this date very clearly because one year when a cousin was about 4 or 5 years old, he asked for snow on his birthday - March 17th - and all the adults laughed at him and prepared him for the possibility that he wouldn't get his birthday wish - but he did!

However, I have never seen snow as late as April 14th! I just took these photos in my garden, snow on a tulip and snow on a hyacinth.

By the way, now the sun is out and it's almost all gone - it lasted about 2 hours.  Crazy, crazy weather.
