Well, today, Groundhog Day, marks the mid-point of the winter and spring solstice. And word has it that Mr. Groundhog saw his shadow – meaning, 6 more weeks of winter! Granted, this prediction takes place thousands of miles from us in Pennsylvania; so if I had to guess, I’d say this means, well, MORE POWDER for Jackson Hole! I think a lot of us would be fine with this, especially this winter, where the snow just keeps on a comin’.
This storm surprised us a bit, as yesterday’s totals were a bit disappointing compared to the predictions. Nevertheless, the storm is now producing precipitation, and lots of it! Local weather forecaster Jim Woodmency at www.mountainweather.com is predicting over 30″ more of the “magic molecules” by Monday evening.
This morning proved to be a healthy refresh on the mountain, and it doesn’t look to be stopping anytime soon!
