Who knows how El Nino will play out, but I keep hearing that forecasters predict a wetter than average spring in CO. Sounds like historical data points to a fat late-spring snowpack (on average) in El Nino years.

Mmmmm, at least we can dream....

I'm Dweeming I'm Dweeming!

...of 150% snowpacks in early April, full reservoirs by late May, changes in water management policy and irrigation practices that free up lots of water that can stay in the rivers, changes in riparian trespass laws that make good sense, Colorado meeting all our interstate compact obligations, turf lawns across the Western US being replaced by xeriscape, golf courses being replaced by Mt. bike trails through natural grassland landscaping...

Dream on!!!!!

And maybe someday it'll become reality!

El Nino - The little punk

I just saw an article that said to look for dry conditions in North and Central Colorado through Mid February. Wetter conditions for Southern Colorado during this time frame. Then more precipitation than average for CO in March-May. That is fairly typical of an El Nino year. I just hope that we get a nice long snowmelt season instead of a big hot flash early in the paddling season the melts stuff out really fast state wide.
