BrianK mentioned it in a earlier thread. I can't tell. I'm in Asheville. But the SNOTEL snowpack graph has taken a nose dive for the last two weeks. What's going on?

As if the sun and wind preys upon our prayers the winter's treasures fade into the wicked breeze. Upon the rocks plastic will drag. The women remain topped. Bastards!!!

was that a haiku, farp? Nice work. The word here is sublimation...ice turing into water vapor directly without a liquid phase. Common along the front range at least, where the dry wind occasionally sweeps in from the planes and carries with it the snow. There's a Ute word for it that I can't remember which means "snow eater".

Three "reservoirs" need to fill before runoff begins:

1) The soil moisture reservoir.
2) Ongoing evapotranspiration as the growing season kicks off.
3) Ground water storage.

You'd be suprised, these water sinks actually account for a pretty huge volume of water. We'll get there soon!

Oh, and farp, nice haiku.

Sorry guys and gals. Too much Lord of the Rings this winter. The indian word is Chinook (Shin-ook) and there is another word for downsloping winds Zepher. Prior to the Rockies the Zephers were Denver's minor league baseball team. Anyway I heard this morning that the wind has been bad this year. I don't think we're going to see five on the rock.
