After a remarkable snow year, it’s seems that we could witness a runoff for the ages in the Poudre Canyon this spring… here in your front yard… compare the snowpack water content at Joe Wright (live data), near Cameron Pass for this year to the best of the rest on record (1983).
Add to what we already have up there right now… the weather pattern is predicted to stay pretty wet, at least in to May. See it for yourself (go halfway down the page to the “GFS” and click “All” at the end of the row below… use the +/- keys to animate after the page loads).
Did you think last year big? This year should be Stellar! Talk to folk who were here in ’83. You will understand.
Oh yeah… at some pre-season training at the Rio… a Longdraw plow driver was heard to report that, sure, “it is deeper than ever, but it is remarkably dense”.
