When life hands you snow, take pictures

Residents of central and western Newfoundland sent us photos of the stormy spring day.

Check out these photos of the May 24 blast of winter

Loyal CBC listener Barry Porter, who lives in Porterville, just drove back from Fort McMurray to find this in his back yard. On his birthday! (Submitted by Barry Porter )

You know the old adage about snow in May ... that the fluffy white stuff could be collected and kept, as it was thought to have healing powers to cure sore eyes.

Residents of central and western Newfoundland have a lot to work with after the record amount that fell on May 24. 

Even the stop sign in Triton couldn’t take the May 24th storm! (Submitted by Michael Roberts )

According to Environment Canada meteorologist Rodney Barney, 36 centimetres fell by 12:30 p.m. Thursday. 

Many people reached for their cameras, and we've put together a photo gallery ... just so you can take it all in.
