  1. Mt LeConte, Beech Mtn, (NC) and other high spots had accumulating snow this morning. NBC channel 5 in Bristol, TN, had footage and said there is more falling in higher elevations of Grayson County, VA, at broadcast time.

  2. Hail and strong winds hit southwest China’s Guizhou Province on Tuesday, causing extensive damage to local farmlands.

    Unusual snow in May blanketed the suburb of Beijing and the mountainous region in Chengde City, north China’s Hebei Province on Monday, forming an amazingly gorgeous scenery.

  3. your nth hemisphere spring…is reminiscent of early winter I would think?
    guess soon the reports of poor sales of clothing etc for spring summer ranges will be blamed on weather..as well as heaps of other moribund manufacturing/sales.
    because a stuffed bankster run economy isnt enough..so they say.
