Digging out

Filed under: Winter — montucky @ 9:08 pm

After waiting so long for La Nina conditions to finally make their effects known on northwest Montana, we finally had a significant snowfall and spent the morning digging out. It was impossible to accurately measure the depth of the snow because last evening a warm, wet air mass came in over colder air in the valley and for about four hours a freezing/frozen rain fell, packing down the snow that had already fallen. We measured 16 inches on the ground this morning, but the actual total was probably more like 20 – 24 inches. Tonight it’s still snowing after about 40 hours. What a beautiful storm and how wonderful to have the snow!
