Stormy Weather

Today in the 'jibber' bowl on Pyramid - snowing like crazy

 The weather really is stuck in a rut.  There is this big jet that's been hitting southeast Alaska and then bending over backwards towards us.  One storm after another has been coming in on the jet.  Pretty much rain and 39 degrees all the time.

Funnily enough for a while there the rain guage at the Kodiak weather station was broken so it did not look like it was raining all that much.  One morning after moderate rain all night, and yet only .03 inches of reported precipitation  I gave them a call and they admitted that it was broken.  Maybe that's why until a few days ago we were still below normal precip for the month of January.

But I have not minded the storms because it has been snowing pretty good on Pyramid.  In the last few days we got 2 to 3 feet of new snow on the mountain.  We now have more snow on the mountain than we had ALL LAST YEAR (albeit not all that high of a bar).

So dismal in town but snow on the mountain - It looks like the 'cup is half full'  Patrick
