If you think the speculatoin is bad now, wait until next week when the permits are released... We didnt have any snow last year until febuary and march.. we had less that we do now at this piont in the year.. But we had a great year... A lot of people getting bored this winter.. I will be getting the boat wet here before too long and doing some steelhead fishing.. shake off the winter blues..It's not even february. Same shit every year. STFU until April.
Never understood the wait until Spring approach but I am also not sad or disillusioned right now. The snowpack data and medians already account for yearly trends. Half of the west could get immense amounts of spring snow but its not remotely forecasted.
The generic forecast is holding out. My old home in Va Beach is experiencing weeks of temperatures lower than my western town at close to 6k feet. NOAA's tend to be a more eloquent in my book:Climate forecasting is to be taken with a truck load of salt.
This was from Jan 20th:
It used to be in times of trouble one could turn to their religious leader for consoling."There's not enough snow on the ground as of february 1st. The spring run off that will take place 4 months from now might be bad. HO HUM, I'm so sad"
There's nothing you're going to do about it anyways go enjoy the warm weather. I don't mind a mountain bike ride occasionally in the middle of January in shorts and a T-shirt. Better than whining on the buzz about it. Like someone will feel bad for you and turn on the snow. lol.
