    Ya n dout these people can just look out the window in the morning and have a better chance of getting our weather correct. Winter has pretty much sucked. The snow pack is only at 30%

The latest snotel report say right at 100% of snowpack/moisture. We have not had as much snow at my place as the last couple of years, but still lots of moisture. All the local lakes started the winter above average. The report from our irrigation company that I am part of predicts a 100% allotment this year, looks ok here.

    As you may know. Buena Vista is in a valley at 8000ft. We're surrounded by over 20 mountains at 14,000ft. The mountains suck most of the moisture out before it hits us. They call the valley the banana belt, because of the mild weather. However, the mountains always get plenty of snow, and there's never a shortage of water for the valley and Arkansas River.

    Nice place to live, and only 15 min from the elk and deer.

    If I had it to do all over again I would go to school to be a weather man. Get paid a six digit salary to be wrong 90% of the time. Besides if you ask my wife she says I have the 90% thing down to an art.

    It has been a great winter as far as I am concerned, have not had much snow like we usually do, and the temps have been very nice for winter. The deer in Northern Utah have really needed this.

    Its march and we hit 78 here in SD today, last year at this time we had 2 feet of snow and much colder. only one snow storm this year amounted to anything and it was the wet fluffy kind and melted off pretty quick, green grass is starting to show!

    Been a good winter to own a motorcycle here in Nebraska! Was almost 80 today, and the rest of the week is the same. My dad said he has seen really good horn growth on the antelope!
