    If we didn’t have that big blocking high pressure ridge in the East Pacific then the storms and the snow would be hitting many more areas! We’ve had a very dry fall in Colorado and Wyoming, but the temperatures have stayed very cold. What snow has fallen has stayed put. Temps are not warm. When the ridge finally moves and a trough forms, letting the storms in, winter’s going to be on big time!

    This storm was quite the disappointment. We were supposed to get 8-16 inches…and we were left with maybe 3 inches. That was before the rain came in and melted it. This was a warm storm for this time of year. Another great job by the models and forecasters…getting it wrong.
