Default How much more snow will we get before summer?

Since today is so very nice and I'm stuck inside working, how much snow do you think we'll get before it's finally summer and I can put the Softopper back on my 4runner? (I have decided to keep the hard top on in the snowy months due to where I park the truck)

This sun sure makes it hard to work and concentrate.

True, but sometimes we don't get any snow in April, only rain. The next 10 days don't seem to have any snow in the forecast. Going to have to mow the grass pretty soon

Biggest snow I ever had while living in Evergreen was 4 feet of wet cement on April 28! Ha!

Tried getting to the cabin yesterday. Tried. I was actually pretty lazy. Camp on my mind. Still a bit of snow.

This is after breaking through a drift to get to that spot. The caretakers wife hoped I didn't get stuck. Guess she knows my truck.

Should have brought a hair drier to melt that snow drift!
