May snow – say it ain’t so! While snow is not unheard of in the High Desert of Central Oregon in May, the unwelcome white stuff does happen every few years. The latest snowfall we’ve experienced in our 10 years in Sisters was June 10. It was just a dusting and it was gone by 9am the next day — but…it…was…snow…in…June.
If the NWS forecasters are correct we will get at least a dusting on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. The road surfaces are solidly above freezing after our recent spate of semi-warm weather so it will be hard if not impossible for snow to impact travel, at least at our elevation (3200′). Still, it would be shocking (dare I say revolting?) to see some of Old Man Winter’s handiwork in late May.
