We got our first snow last night. It wasn’t much — exactly an inch as measured on our porch railing. But we were all celebrating. Why?
Our last snow was 218 days ago, our fifth longest snow-less stretch. Last night’s snow also marks a new record of latest first snow on record. As somebody I met on a sunny Monday morning said “These are not the sorts of records you want to be part of.”
It can keep snowing for the next month, and I don’t think many people would mind. Because if we don’t get it, we are heading back into a drought.
