My Weather Prediction

First, we were supposed to get 6-8 inches of snow on Tuesday. We got nothing but a lot of wind. Now we were supposed to get 12-18 inches of snow. We have an inch. Ft Collins has had one decent snowfall this winter--and it melted in 36 hours.

The water table projections are scary low. And the pine beetles...Those little buggars have killed thousands of trees in the mountains.

Dead trees + Low water tables = Horrifying Forest Fires.

I have a bad feeling Colorado is going to make headlines this summer.

***edited*** School has been cancelled (after the kids were already there). Probably up to six inches now. But, Mrs. nature, I have hot chocolate! Hah!

  1. On my side of Fort Collins we're far past an inch now. It's going to be a dry summer, certainly, but I've still got my fingers crossed. We're not in the red yet.

    I'm just wondering if CSU is going to have classes tomorrow, should it keep up like this. :D
