Weather: More of the same with strong wind the past 24 hours and light to moderate snow, though it did stop from 10-2 yesterday and 1-5 this morning. But blizzard conditions with a lot of snow transport. The 24 hour totals are 10½” new snow and 0.73″ of water- still dense but lighter than the past few days. Pretty much obscured all the time though some brief cloud lifting to see that nothing on Snodgrass had slid as of mid day yesterday. Snowpack is at the winters deepest of 93½” but is now settling as fast as it comes down. Cooler last night with the current 15F the days low, while overcast and snowing lightly with steady wind 5-10 W gusting to 25. Snowfall this month 78″ so far with 6.83″ of water.
