Snow In the San Juans
Thursday, we had 13" of snow. It started snowing, lightly but steadily, at 11:00 a.m. today (Jan. 27, 2008). The later we got into the afternoon, the heavier the snow became. We've accumulated 8.5" new snow as of 8:00 p.m. The electricity went out around 6:30 pm, but came right back on. I hope it stays on, but I'm worried because this is another wet, heavy snow. I filled the tub with water and have cussed myself relentlessly for not buying batteries to replace those I used up during the last electricity outage.
13" of snow on Thursday, 24 January 2008, plus 14.5" of snow 27 January 2008, 6" of that falling after Wes plowed at 9:30 p.m. last night. The entry to south drive has 16" of snow and the north drive 22".
NOW... That's Snow! 24 Jan. - 13" of snow; 27 Jan. - 14.5" of snow; 28 Jan. - 4"; 29 Jan. - 3"; From 2:45 p.m., 1 Feb. - 11:00 a.m. 2 Feb. - 9.5". And still coming down. Electricity is still on. When wind blows a little, it's a whiteout. This snow isn't as wet and heavy as the snow that felled trees and downed electric lines and equipment the 5th, 6th, 7th of January." -- SBW
