Unhappy 30+ inches and still snowing


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


We have 30+ inches and still snowing in my area which is very unusual. There is so much snow in the mountains and hills, the Elk have made there way towards town. We estimated roughly 100+ on this side of a hill and alot more on the other side but couldn't get close enough for a picture. It's about a mile from town In Weiser "weezer" Idaho. The other picture is our bowling alley that apparently couldn't handle the 30+ inches. That came down day before yesterday
I also live only a few blocks from the Weiser river and the Snake river, and there starting to flood. It is going to be a terrible spring.

Is that 30 inches for the season (so far), or 30 inches for one event?

Sorry ol boy, but from where I am from, Upstate NY, 30 inches is a start.
On average we get 200+ inches a winter. We are on track for that average.
The single digit temps or even negative, ok, those can be a nutz buster.
That is without the windchill.

Think of it this way. snow equals re-charging of the water table.
My FIL lives an hour north of me, but they have gotten less than a foot of snow so far. Come spring and summer, they are looking at a hard drought unless they get some serious spring rainfall.

If you have livestock or depend on hay fields, that can be a end game.

Wow

That's a lot for your area, Have friends up in Midvale and said to be a tough one for them at the ranch. We have had a lot of mixture here of snow and rain and some heavy wet snow. Plowed out my road yesterday down to the county road 1 mile below us. Had to punch through a drift that was almost 3 ft deep on one corner.
Come'on spring!

Yes I can only imagine what Midvale looks like. They are usually first to flood when the Weiser river breaks its banks. There is a ice jam around Fruitland and Ontario In the Snake river that's causing flooding as well.

Some years ago a local school district hired a PhD type for superintendant. They had a pretty new school, gym and nice auditorium.

Much snow came and the PhD made an announcement "the roofs had an inordinant amount and school maintenance personnel initiated snow removal procedures."

Why didnt he just say "snow was a55 deeep and we shoveled it off?"
