A lot of snow down here. Schools cancelled for tomorrow already.

I had to pull the full length of my winch rope to get up the road to our house after work.

Yep, we are getting pounded here in Pagosa. 9" as of Tuesday am, 8" more by Wednesday, and i just snow blowed my drive with another 9-10". We are supposed to get another 12" overnite, and all day Friday, Friday night, and Saturday. Wolf Creek should have over 4' of fresh by Saturday am, not including the 2 1/2' they got on Monday-Tuesday.
Bummer for us is they close the pass on this side at random for avalanches, and the people going up from the Southfork side get the goods. Oh well, i have to plow my jobsite, shop, and friends shop before i play anyway :(
I'm going to go plow in about 20 minutes. Night plowing is cool !

we are planning on skiing Wolf Creek on Sunday. Hopefully they don't get the whole mountain open on Saturday.;)

Man wish I could make it down there to ski. Sounds like Wolf creek, silverton, telluride, etc are all going to be epic! If only it wasn't a 6 hour drive.... Hopefully we'll get some snow sometime in the northern mountains, but the warm weather is good for rebuilding starters in the un-insulated garage.

Have a blast skiing!

Anyone up for a run (h...ummm...slide) down Black Bear's "Waterfall" on Saturday?:lmao::lmao::lmao: Happy diggin' tomorrow guys!

I heard a forecast this afternoon for another 2-3 feet tomorrow in Flagstaff on top of an already received 4-5 feet. And it'scoming your way man!

My wife :Princess: grew up in Durango in the 60's and her dad has been updating us on the weather every few days. She said it's sounds just like she remembers when she was growing up there.

Thank gawd, we're in the midst of all of this global warming....just imagine how bad the winter would be if we weren't? :banghead:

We just have some mild wind gusts in the 40-50 MPH range here about 12 miles from the summit of Mt. Evans.:lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao:

Just got home. Dumped 8" since 6:00 pm. Wolf Creek pass is closed. I'm going to bed.
If anyone of you can get here to ski/board, we have room for you to crash. It will be epic, but we're used to it.

Mike, now you know why Suzie and I decided that Pagosa Springs just wasn't the place for us to move to even though we love your area in the summertime.

Steve, i completely understand. I have been in the high country since 1973, and i still really do love it, but this particular storm is kicking my @ss. The snow from yesterday is very wet, and it is snowing about an inch an hour right now.
About twice a winter i have to snow blow the inside of my yard around the perimeter to keep the dogs in, and this snow is so heavy i can't even do it. I have a 4' fence and the snow is even or above it right now !
I'm glad we own Land Cruisers.

I didn't take any pictures yesterday as I was too busy running the snow thrower. But here is one Marianne took from the porch. The snow bank along the side of the house is what is blocking the view of the garage. Avalanches off the roof have piled up about 7' deep along the house.

Wow, that's some crazy snow Corbet! :eek::)

This could be the Rising Sun January calendar picture for next year:

Dry as can be here, and I hope it stays that way, at least until after the baby arrives. ;)
