Bad Luck, bad form.... bad idea?

So I don't want to come right out and say it. But most of the west is missing something this winter. We have some of it but not as much as years past. Have I lost track of how much we usually have by now? I know their are pockets that have a good bit..... but not most areas.

I don't want to right out and complain..... its still very early and sometimes this stuff piles up in amasing amounts in a weeks time...... I am afraid to even say what I am sad and concerned about...... I don't want us all to be punished for my bad attitude.

Simply put, storms have been dropping south so far this season. The snow is at Wolf Creek and Taos....

sounds like the I-70 corridor should get a good shot of fresh powder later this week:

as far as the Ark Valley goes, we have had more "upslopes" than usual, but the basin wide snowpack is 96% of average, and 130% of what we had at this date last year.

Welcome to a regular to very slightly below average snow year - and its still early in the season.
