Mild again today, then colder. Still no blizzards in sight.
Our snowless February looks to continue for at least another week. High pressure will give us one more day of mild sunshine later today before more clouds and colder temperatures roll in tonight and tomorrow. We may see a few flurries overnight, but I’m not going to get excited about it. If you’re loving our grassy winter, you can thank our previous two winters which were way above average for snowfall. The universe has to balance out, so we’re staying well below average this winter to make up for it. Or maybe a butterfly flapped its wings in Colorado and altered the flow of snowstorms to our south and east. What do you think?
