Big Storm To End February (Be Patient Snow-Starved Weenies!)

By: wfreeck, 1:24 AM GMT on February 12, 2010

Well first let me say I am so proud that I finally am sharing on some of that nice deep snowpack. I did do a little worse than I thought, but still 6" isn't bad considering the significant snow drought we have (while we're still 5" below average, we would have been more like 12" below average without this past winter storm).Well in this part of the country there's nothing to write home about in the weather department.
