    No good Chew on this...

    TUESDAY NIGHT AND WEDNESDAY. THE PALMER RIDGE IS IN THE SNOW ON
    BOTH MODELS. SO FOR POPS...IT`S HARD NOT TO GO WITH "LIKELY"S FOR
    MUCH OF THE FORECAST AREA WITH THIS STORM...COMMENCING DURING THE
    AFTERNOON TUESDAY. IT`S SOMEWHAT OF A "NO-BRAINER" FOR A BIG
    SNOWFALL OVER THE EASTERN SLOPE OF THE HIGH MOUNTAINS AND THE
    FOOTHILLS WITH THE SNOW MODEL GIVING 1.5 TO 3.0 FEET IN THESE
    AREAS. THE BIG QUESTION IS WHETHER THE URBAN CORRIDOR GETS A
    HEAVY-WET-TREE/PLANT-DESTROYING SNOWFALL.

    I'm glad I chewed on this yesterday:

    Got in Chimney/Apex yesterday and Matt/Winters today before this suppose Armageddon. Good times, except the saddle-ass from first rides of the season!

    Any moisture is good, but rain is preferable at this point in the season. Two steps forward, one step back...

    The last snow thunderstorm we had, maybe seven weeks ago (?) I went out and walked around in it at the height. It was unbelievable. High winds, snow so thick I was choking. I went back and knocked on my neighbors door: "you gotta come out here, it's incredible". They got out their skiing gear (they're from Texas) put on their ski goggles, grabbed a bottle of wine and headed out into the storm. They disappeared in about 20 feet.

    What I'm saying, except for riding dry trail, monster storms can be fun...for awhile.

    I've seen the forecast for up to 3 FEET of SNOW in the foothills, which could be 3 inches of water depending on the moisture content.

    To do what, so you can spend the morning digging your Subi out from many feet of oatmeal? And don't even start w/ the Subi miracle wagon.

    I think I posted a few months ago that I thought that the FR would get one more big one before the season was over. Interestingly, Spencer at the CAIC is predicting around 6" south of I-70 Mtns.

    I could come pick you up since you won't be able to get out of your parking lot.

    Now if we'd just get a hard freeze maybe it'd kill some of those bark beetles right before they start to fly.... or maybe not
