north wind

Ok, so the backyard snow-board showed about 3 1/2 inches of accumulation this morning.  Interesting thing was that the bottom 1/2 inch was snice.  Which means things began rain-like here in the valley (at 7500').  I'd say that has been the trend with each of the last 3 major snow events around CC; not much snow accumulation in the valley, but a Fair bit! up high.  (observed about 12-18" of well consolidated snow, on a 9,000 northerly aspect last week).  Thus, the editor is optimistic for a good basal snow structure.  :)
