The more I look at this storm, the more I realize how close it was too us! If you click on the picture, you will notice that we were right on the edge of some major snowfall! You may not know this, but it is extremely difficult to forecast a storm like this one and even harder to communicate your thoughts to the public. Overall, I am satisfied with our coverage and our forecast. Some places in "Region 8" got some snow... even it was not much. Some places got rain... and some of it was way TOO much.
While we are looking at this storm, here is another cool graphic to show... actually a warm graphic. Let me explain... This is the snow melt from today. We did not have much snow in Region 8, so the bright sunshine melted anything that was out there quickly. It probably melted in less than an hour. Here's the snow melt graphic:
Lastly... I had a man stop me tonight and tell me how awesome the snow was in our Northwestern counties. He was staying in Mountain Home and drove home today. He said it was just enough to cover the ground, but the roads were fine. I wish I had seen some pictures! Anyone? Anyone?
Well, the weather is going to warm up a little this week. It sure was nice to see the sun today!
