25 years ago, Bismarck got a big snowstorm in April that left us with 17" of snow along with high winds. After the storm the local parking lot of the shopping center looked like this.

Today, we are getting a similar one expected to last two days. The current forecast is for 12-24" of snow this time with 50 mph winds to pile it up. The parking lots might look like this again soon.

Ok, I'll cross ND off the list of retirement places. I live in New Hampshire and we can get snow in April but it's rare and it's at least supposed to hit 60 today. I just don't like extended winter any longer. I must be getting old.

That storm is to drop 60-70 cms in southern Saskatchewan. Much is made of "Alberta clippers" that we get in winter but ironically the worst spring or fall snow storms usually originate in Colorado.

Speaking of Colorado, I grew up there and saw many late-season snow storms. One year in Colorado Springs we got 17" on May 7th!
