Poor Denver Moms Woke Up To A Spring Snowstorm Today

"Just what I wanted!" — No Denver Mom Ever.

Posted on May 10, 2015, at 12:19 p.m. ET

The good people of Denver and its environs awoke this Sunday, opened their shutters full of glee, expecting to smell the sweet springtime flowers, and instead encountered this...

A wintry hellscape that saw up to 10 inches of snow fall in the metro area with overnight lows in the mid 20s, according to the National Weather Service.

A winter storm warning was also in place across southeast Wyoming and the western Nebraska panhandle.

Meteorologists said an "unseasonably cold air mass" was to blame. No kidding.

The streets looked positively bustling with people.

The poor trees, which were probably more excited about Spring than anyone, suffered a fair bit of damage.

This snow is very heavy! Huge tree down by Cherry Creek Mall & big branches on cars elsewhere #cowx @DenverChannel

And here it was on Sunday. No wonder the Rockies-Dodgers game was scrapped.

That patio set you put out for Spring is looking pretty silly right now, huh?

Some people still found a way to show some motherly love.

This is actually pretty cool.
