@tsarstepan,
I've a faint memory of snow in April in Chicago, but if the memory is even true, it wasn't a foot of snow.

We hit 90 degrees the other day. I would take some colder weather, just now.

@tsarstepan,
Back when I lived in the Boston area, on May 9 1978, the crocusues/croci(?) were in bloom and 6 inches of snow fell in 128/95 inner belt.way area. My job was telephone system repair and I was zipping around like a monkey with his hair on fire doing system repairs due to power outages.

When I have forgotten - say 35 years ago. Snow on Midsummer eve the 24th of June in southern Sweden.
The blooming poppies looked very lovely surrounded by snow.
There has been many cold midsummers

The April Fool's Day Blizzard (1997)
Quote:
The April Fool's Day Blizzard was a major winter storm in the Northeastern United States
on March 31 and April 1, 1997. The storm dumped rain, sleet, and snow from Maryland to
Maine leaving hundreds of thousands without power and as much as three feet of snow
on the ground.

Due to the date many people took warnings of the storm less than seriously. Plows had
already begun to be put away for the summer and hardware stores had to sell shovels
again even though they already had out patio furniture. One commuter called it
"Mother Nature's April Fools' Joke."

@Region Philbis,
That wonderfully infamous April Fool's Day Blizzard is in the top 5 of my personal favorite blizzards of all time. One of the only remaining memories of my time at Framingham State University (it was called Framingham State College back then).

@tsarstepan,
Two blizzards remain in memory, though I'm not sure of the exact date: both of them in early November. One on the day we arrived in New York City from California, and the other, a year later, when we arrived in Chicago. I was eight on the first one, and nine on the second. Both occasions amazing, very cold, and also beautiful.

Our daughter´s baptism
A snowstorm - on the property on the other side of the street was a chimny the house should come later.
It blow down
Our daughter was supposed to be baptised in church on Saturday (speicial allowence)
Did not work out - had the ceremony at home. Very nicely decorated.
Delivered dinner - what luck - electricity went three times.
Relatives from Denmark could first leave a couple of days later because of snow.
It was so much nicer to have it at home than have to have had to dig out the cars and go to an icecold church.
