    We get snow in July sometimes too... not every year, but often enough.

    Arctic AND Antarctic! So... no matter what time of the year, you are subject to winter temps!

    I remember one year we where camping and we had probably all the weather that you could get in one day. When we got up there the fog rolled in, then it started raining, then sleet, then hail, then we had snow and finally it ended with a nice sunny day in the 60s.
    The snow has melted at least in our town but we are supposed to be in for a long hard winter.

    Around here, we have a saying... "You don't like the weather? Wait 5 minutes... it'll change."

    This just shows you how crazy my family is. My dad was in town last week and he took my grandpa elk hunting on opening day. My grandpa is 93. He's going to out live us all.
