    .. Our little village is digging out from a couple of days of poorly anticipated heavy snow fall.
    .. We've discovered why our local weather forecasters are so often wrong: "They have no windows in their offices."
    .. The temperature forecast lows for the next few days are in the minus teens and twenties. Save the snow!
    .. We are about 20% ahead of our recent historic snow depth years and about 10% over our recent historic snow water years. Quite a change from recent years. Perhaps it will continue. The forgiving Jet Stream is keeping the truly bitter cold just a bit North and East of us.
    .. The west side of the divide is warmer and getting blizzards as the storms pile up around Driggs and most of Fremont County in Idaho.
    .. It's way too early to get too optimistic but, if this continues it will be reminiscent of the good water years of the not so recent past and the great fishing that the churned up and renewed streams will provide.

    .. Come early March, 2017, we'll peek again and see what the Spring run off may bring. So far though, it's not looking too shabby.

    .. The neighbors have abandoned shoveling until our snow depth reaches five feet, (tomorrow or the next day.)
    .. They have already produced what many an inebriated soul has pronounced as the winning fly for the Winter, (we'll wait for the sober evaluation.)
    .. They call it the "dayGLO rubber legs bugger."
