There was a lot more snow than this (about 5 inches), but I didn't have the heart to take any more photos.  I went to bed last night listening to the welcome sound of the rain ... some time during the night it turned to snow, heavy, wet, tree-killing snow.  I lost two lilacs, one cherry tree and one Ash Leaf Maple.  My husband and I pruned as best we could to try and save what's left, but only time will tell if the rest of the lilacs, cherries and maples survive.  I'm hoping the little cherry fruits on the unharmed trees will ripen for the birds.  Our high was only 34 today.  Tonight will be down in the twenties.  January in May ... a mixed blessing, that's for sure.
