How much snow you got??

Postby Bill Reed » Sat Dec 03, 2011 5:48 pm

This one's for ~ CastillejaMiniata - thanks for the wake up call!

Just got another 3-4 inches overnight on top of the 3-4 we got Thursday morning. It's starting to look a lot like......winter in this part of the Front Range, in spite of what the calendar says.

Got about 8 inches here near the Dam Store. Woke up last night about 2am after hearing all these little pinging noises, put my ear to the window and decided it was snow hitting it. Weird.

5", but our snow will likely last a long time.

Flagstaff (northern AZ) received 12" at 7,200', with more on the way. I would go up there if I could afford the gas, and the wheels that go along with it.

You could send some snow my way. I'm in eastern Canada and we usually are sitting around -20C (-4F) in the mornings with 2-3 feet of snow by now. Right now it's 6C (42F) and it has snowed here once maybe 2 inches which was gone in like 2 days! Honestly where's my wintertime?!?!?!

Maybe I will borrow yours, at least until I get mine back. If it goes from this (12 C/53F) to suddenly back to normal in January (last year we had at least 4 feet of snow with some -40C/-40F days) then I will probably die of temp shock. If you don't want the snow and cold weather then we can switch and you can come to eastern Canada for some December beach weather this year! :?

Flagstaff has around 8-12 in most places. We were supposed to get double that amount last night and today but then that system moved east and hit New Mexico instead. Bleh :/ We hiked up some of the runs at the Arizona Snowbowl last Saturday and they had 2.5 feet of fresh pow.
