The weather in France has been very varied in recent weeks, but nobody could have expected snow on April 30th.

Many residents of the northern French region of Normandy woke up on Monday to find a considerable layer of snowfall on their rooftops and cars.

The mercury dropped to around zero in many parts of the historical region, with the departments of Eure and Seine-Maritime registering the lowest temperatures.

In the city of Rouen, the wind chill made it feel like a frosty –5°C in the early hours of the morning.

It may have only been a couple of centimeters of snow on average, but flabbergasted residents have taken to social media to share their best pictures and video of the surprise snowfall. …

My wife and I got snowed and sleeted on in mid-April while camping in The Netherlands in 1981. The storm came across the Channel from England where it had shut down transportation. It made for an interesting visit to the Keukenhof the next morning to see the tulips. Each flower held a small amount of sleet.

I was gonna put this question under “a friend said to me” but hell, the world hates a coward.

It was 45 today in NYC. It’s gonna be 82 in a few days.

I dont remember with my middle aged brain if that’s the norm through spring or if it’s just a random occurrence based on normal weather patterns this time of year.

Forget about global climate change nonsense, HOW does weather change 40 degrees in a few days? Fascinating.

But in full disclosure, I am embarrassed but courageous enough to say that the SJW onslaught combined with the extreme change in weather here the next few days, for a BRIEF part of a second, made me wonder :(

We’re only human :(

It snowed in Reno, Tx yesterday? Did not think it was cold enough being a high of 86f.

Wow.

It’s on me to read the why, but thanks for the reply.

My IDIOCY only lasted a split second.

That’s why it’s important to visit FR so often.

Many here are completely immune to the leftist onslaught.

I’d like to think I am, but I think the FR reinforcement is very helpful.

I had a half inch in my yard this morning. There are still two foot snowbanks along most of my driveway.

It’s called WEATHER!!

The Talking Heads were talking about the dearth of tornadoes this season.

Well, DUH! When there is no warm weather - THERE ARE NOT TORNODOES!!

Is this bad for the Calvados apple brandy?

They were always drinking it Erich Maria Remarque’s “Arc de Triomphe.”

It's been in the mid 30's over night here in central NY State. Tomorrow rain and snow mixed...high of 50. It's 43 now, and supposed to go down to 36 tonight. I've still had to run my heat in the mornings to warm my apartment up. Most years we end up going right from Winter to Summer, with very little spring at all. It looks like it's going to be that way this year too. We had a heavy, wet snow storm on Mother's Day here back in 2000.

I was in Normandy in early May in 2006. The weather was gorgeous. In Paris, people were still wearing sweaters and winter coats. I must have looked like a freak to them because I wasn't wearing a jacket or coat. The temperatures were in the high 50's or low 60's. Later that same May, the bus tour I was on was in the Scottish Highlands. It was snowing, and some of the people on the bus were from Australia. They'd never seen snow before, and had the bus driver stop so they could get pictures of it to show the people back home.

When I was stationed in England in the early 70’s it snowed once in JUNE, albeit, not much.
