This Winter has been weird. Here it is the 18th of January, and it's been in the 50's and 60's, with the occasional dip in temperature. In the Denver Metro area, we've barely had any snow, and although the Rocky Mountains have gotten some, it hasn't been the usual precipitation expected.
And even though all the signs (heavy yields on cherry trees, birds flocking early, thick wooly coats on caterpillars, etc.) were there for a heavy winter, we still haven't gotten much.
Is it still coming?
Here's a link: http://www.almanac.com/weatherforecast/us/12 - they have the following graph on their site plus predictions:
Last summer was unbearably hot, with very little precipitation. We need the snow pack in the mountains so that we won't be on water restrictions in Summer 2009.
Just a feeling... maybe we'll get a heavy snow in March. Something like December 2007 that stopped Denver in its tracks, or March 2003 (?) It snowed so much that it covered a 4 year old past the top of the little hat-covered head.
We need the snow. Hello, up there!?!
