Finally Snow

 Here in the mountains we need snow for moisture that will hopefully last the remainder of the year and keep the wildfire hazard down. We normally receive an average of 264" per year of snow and up until today we had only received 140". We were starting to get  nervous whether we would get enough snow or not but today it is finally snowing. Those big fluffy flakes that contain lots of moisture. This was really needed both for the moisture and outdoor exercise in moving it. We were starting to get lazy. Only 5" so far but the storm isn't over yet.
At this time of year most people are pretty much fed up with the snow and are spitting and cussing when it comes. Not us - we welcome it for all the benefits it brings....

While some places have had lots of snow, some mountain forests haven't had the predicted important amounts. glad your getting more.
