We now have about 10+ inches of new snow on the ground. Our morning temp was 18F at 7am . Some of this new snow will probably stay now for this year. The snow lasted most of yesterday and into the night. Yes, the LMC is ready and I did start and move the VMC yesterday afternoon.

Snowcat Operations, Its a 1976 1644. It has the 318 and 4 speed tranny. I owned it for about 6 years. I does very well in the powder, but it takes a lot of room to turn it around. We use it to go in and out to our cabin out side Laramie. Here are a few pics.

Got a small dump on Friday/Saturday, about 6 inches.

The temp has dropped (saw -1 F on the way to work this morning) so I don't think it's going away.

Got a light dusting here yesterday, not even worth hauling out the camera. It's coming though. I can feel it!

Normally we get a few snow storms as we have so far before Holloween. Then about Thanksgiving we start to get our major storms that dump a bunch of snow which lasts till April or June

Same here. The storm we got last night dumped about ten inches. Most of it'll be gone in a week or so. Then it'll take a couple weeks for the ground to freeze. After that, the snow we get from then on will be here till April.

Hi thcri! I'm also in SE Minnesota and no snow yet, but forecast temps are for below the freezing point, so precip might be in the form of snow. Ground isn't frozen yet, so probably wouldn't last.

That chart of annual snowfall doesn't bode well for the "Global Warming" Crowd. Looks like the cycles in the last 120 some odd years look normal, and if that is the case, we are going to get a bunch more snow in the next few years....

By the way, just South of Nenana, Alaska, this last week we got about a foot of snow...and -15...

This recording station is in Soda Springs, CA. This is near Donner Summit/Boreal/Sugar Bowl if you know those places. It's also just down the hill from my property.

Some key stats from the chart:
Average Annual Snowfall: 408 inches = 34 feet
Average Max Snowpack on Ground: 142 inches = 11.8 feet

P.S. If you click the image it will be easier to read.

No snow where I live, but there has been some on high ground and I had to go to Hereford (about 90 miles away) and passed over the mountains and they have had a lot of snow in the last couple of days. Wish I had some - I wanna go out to play!
