Well, I guess I'll go and be the odd one out again....
I'm at about 8000 ft. in Colorado, about 100 miles north of the NM border.
And it is COLD. Last year, all the farmers talked about was how there was no precipitation. And there wasn't. Where I live is border desert-like area
and National Forest. It was so dry last year, and warm. It's like this thread is a flashback to last year's weather in the Valley.
Continuing.... I moved to Colorado right before winter last year, expecting the worse, getting less snow than Texans are used to.
This year- COMPLETE opposite. Like whoa! It's snowed several times, and although the last time was over a week ago, there's still a couple of feet
of snow on the ground. It has only reached above freezing a handful of times, while dropping below zero every-once-in-a-while.
Wolf Creek Ski Area (10,000ft) claims 200 inches so far this season. Last year they had over 400 by the end. This season isn't over until end of
March at the earliest. In fact, the locals expect LOTS more snow before spring. And more cold.
Also, when checking the almanac for averages and such, our area's pretty right on.
So... seems I do, in fact, live in a perfect bubble. I love finding proof.
Enjoy your warm weather all!
