Good advice. Word is the storm came in light last Wed., Thurs., then the storm fell as 11% moisture Friday into Saturday, then Sunday's snow was a saturated 12%....Today it was falling as mostly graupel in the morning and turned to colder wind driven flakes this afternoon...many funky layers to say the least. It should make for a good base though if we (and mother nature) give it a couple of mild weeks before loading again...otherwise the bc is going to be touchy for awhile.
