I love it! Two days ago it was all warm and sunny and winter was in full retreat, and then yesterday it snowed 6 inches and temperatures are supposed to stay below freezing for the next few days. I think I'll even be able to go back to using my wood skis and extra blue wax. My wood skis are only good for powder snow and I had sort of given up on using them again.
It's funny but I noticed we 'officially' only have 2 inches of snow on the ground out at the airport. There was a lot more than that out there yesterday when I drove by the airport. I have noticed that the 'official' measurement have often seemed a little low this year, and I am wondering if the weather service is recording things differently. In years past if it stayed snow during a storm and we got a 1/2 inch of precipitation then we invariably also got a 1/2 foot of snow. But this year the equivalent measurements seem a bit lower.
But who cares as long as we got snow to ski on!
