lots of snow fall. just too warm to build up.

what i’m seeing would be crazy deep if it were 36f after three weeks of hot dry days.

Just got off South Boulder Peak and Bear Peak in B-Town and the snow above ~6,500 feet was ankle to knee deep and powdery. I was basically swimming in slush below that, and as I left it started to snow really hard. A small amount of accumulation and no current falling snow here in Louisville. Stay patient friends, we may get some yet!

yeah the lack of snow finally got to me and I got a quick 5 mile hike in today. The ground was so damned warm it was just muddy.

Petty. Love it! Absolute favorite song of his.
It's one of many treasures Petty left us. Sums up the week pretty good too! My neighbors are telling me not to play it anymore :lol:
I love that. Have that dvd which is DAMN good. I could just kick his ass for leaving us too soon. I’ll see if I can find a song video of another band I love and will put it in the 5 favorite band... thread for you later. Thanks for posting this one!
Yeah I love that doc. Watched it a few times on Netflix. The waiting is finally over. The snowpocalypse is here!
Some day our kids will study Clash lyrics in school.

Something is better than nothing I guess, but at least locally it's more of a slushpocolypse so far.

I look forward to seeing what dumped on Longs Peak. I'm hoping those couloirs get filled out. In town it's now a few inches, but hardly newsworthy. Guess my dentist appointment on Monday won't be cancelled!

Looks like the storm of the century finally got cranking - better late than never. Maybe 10-11" here in the North Denver 'burbs.

There's a lil over 2ft of snow in town in Telluride this morning and still coming down hard. The upper elevations would have gotten much more. Most of this fell since last night to this morning.

The snow machine finally got cranking. We have close to a foot in Boulder and it continues to snow steadily.

From a friend who lives two miles south of Divide: "went to bed with about an inch. woke up to this..."
