Hammer time here now. Best rates of the day. Last gasp maybe? This snow is better than I thought it was going to be. I'll take it.

Cheers Joe!

Only got a quarter of an inch at the house. But it was nice to see it snow. More coming in tonight into tomorrow morning.  Maybe another 1 to 3 inches up in the favored areas. I think this will be more of a NW flow snow.

I ended up with 2.5 inches of powder yesterday. Temperature hovered near or just below freezing throughout the event. We'll see what the next lobe of energy brings tonight into tomorrow morning. There is still abundant available moisture evident across the Mountains this morning.

I came home yesterday evening and we had 1/2” or so laying around.  My wife said the sun came out after it stopped snowing and it just “defluffed” lol.  Pretty sure being we are south facing and the temp in the 20’s with a real dry snow resulted in a good bit of sublimation of what the actual total was which I know was at least an inch (I’m gonna guess we ended up between 1 and 2 as we had 1/2” when I left before 11 am and she sent me a picture 1.5 hours later of double that with it still ripping).  My rough calculations puts us at 12”+ for a season total which I think is a touch more than what we ended up with last season.  No clue on the exact average here but my estimate based on what I can find is it’s something like 20-30”, so I’ll call it halfway there.  Thus far we’ve had cold, one decent flow snow for my location that was more than the typical dusting to an inch,  snow on the ground Christmas, snow multiple times a week, etc. I’d call that a good start considering we are still in mid-January, especially when you look at the past 5 years.
