Spring Snowstorm in Flagstaff

I'm glad I checked the weather before heading up to Flagstaff on Saturday morning. It was below freezing with a chance of snow.
As I approached, I started to see a light dusting of snow from the previous night.

And then there was more snow.

It had been really windy, as all the snow was angled on the west side of objects. The west sides of street signs were totally covered.
When I arrived on the NAU campus at 8 am, there was still a pretty good blanket of snow on the ground
and the San Francisco Peaks had a nice dusting.
By the time I left at 12:30, most of the snow had melted, although it was still cold and windy.

Or did the lumberjack clear the snow?
