Wonderful White Christmas

Colorado Snowpack Map 1-8-2015After a rather dry start to December, Colorado’s snow, beginning with a wonderful white Christmas, began our climb back to “normal.” Colorado snowpack level statewide is now 94% of average.  Levels this year are currently better than both 2012 and 2013, but still not quite as high as they were in 2014, and 2014 never reached the levels we had in 2011.  Normal peak date is in early April, and March is typically the “snowiest” month of the year for Colorado.  Hopefully, we have a lot of snow left to look forward to!
