They'd have to have gotten an average of 6" snow-water equivalent for that to be accurate. Even though we drove through snow all the way from Avon to Denver last night, I don't think quite that much came down. For comparison, you can see the big blizzard that we had in March 2003 (where the red line goes vertical in mid-march) which dumped 3-6 feet of snow up in the foothills. There are a lot of farmers and water suppliers out east that'd love to see that if it were real.

Who knows, though? Maybe, just maybe...

electrical spike

Usually, when looking at daily snow depth from snotel sites, there is a crazy spike when a big snow hits, or not so big for that matter. Usuallyl that appears to be taken out of the data that is plotted on the graph.

I would guess that somehow the spike may have gotten plotted.

It's true! I won't take no for an answer. Scientists can't lie or be wrong.

Maybe we could talk them into putting the spike back on the graph so we can continue living in that fantasy.
