Winter has ARRIVED!!!

Postby leanin' H » Mon Feb 19, 2018 12:20 pm

After a real dry start and middle of winter here on the desert, we sure got hammered today. :D It started last night and hasn't quit. 10 inches here at my place with 14 inches on the mnt at the snowtel station! And its snowing to beat hell as I type. I spent all morning digging out myself and neighbors. What a great storm!!! Really oughta boost our average which has been below 50% all fall and winter. YIPEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

One man's treasure is another man's, well you know. We are getting a little snow, then mud, then ice. Stalk grazing still holding out alright. If we don't get a little rain this spring, I'll wish it had snowed I guess. Right now I'm glad for Utah. Enjoy H!

Glad to hear about the water. Our mud is still a couple of months away...

Glad for you H'. Our winter is an old-fashioned one. Snow, melt, ice, snow, melt, ice. 14" on the ground. Neighbors are plowing snow to feed on, and then another place for the cows to lay down.

However, we are in AZ and it is DRY, DRY, DRY. I've heard the locals say the desert won't even green up this spring. We have been
all over AZ the last 2 months and only been in .75 inch of rain over by Alamo Lake. Even Springerville/Eagar is dry and they are
worried. Beautiful country there in the White Mountains.

Enjoy the moisture!!
There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.
