Snow, Snow and MORE Snow..

Sorry, no current pictures for the moment. I'll post some as soon as I can. Today is Saturday, and I didn't have to work, but I was supposed to go over to Fawn and Chuck's house to feed their pets. Well, state road 706 out here in front of the park was covered in slush and snow, but the further west you got (Highway 7), the slush was turning to packed ice. I turned around and called Fawn's neighbor to come feed the horse tonight.

The central Cascades are expecting more than a foot of new snow today/tomorrow morning. Here's what one of our park biological techs sent out in an email today:

You may think there is more snow on the ground in Longmire this year [compared to last year], but take note of the following:

2008 March 27th Longmire snowdepth: 64"
2009 March 27th Longmire snowdepth: 51"

Also of interest:

From March 27th-March 29th of 2008, Longmire received 21" of snow to reach a total of 70" on the ground by March 29th.

The storms over the next few days should bring over a foot of snow to Longmire.

When will spring arrive? Those of you with daffodils and tulips coming up: I'm officially ignoring you. :P
