Loveland and Berthoud have just matched or exceeded last year's peak snowpack number. Probably the best sign is that the trend is accumulation versus melt.

The best news is that they're not working on the canyon this year durring runoff. Did you all know they didn't activate those cell towers until like December?

I remember trying my cell phone in the canyon and it didn't work. Now I know why.

Loveland and Berthoud continue to build snowpack. Their SWE's are climbing above last year's peak by at least 50%.

Seems like a good bet that the peak flow will get up to 500 CFS.

Thanks to all this wonderful recent snowfall, we are up to 85% of normal, which is way better than last year! Plus, it's been cold, so it's holding well, with more on the way in the next few days
