Snowstorm will bring less than 10 inches – but I hope I’m wrong
February 7, 2008 — Snowstorm will bring less than 10 inches – but I hope I’m wrong
As the saying goes, the only constant with the weather is that it always changes. Two days ago the storm that is hitting us now was just a little blip on the map.
According to the National Weather Service this storm looks to pack a punch that could add to the already historical snow totals. By this evening we should start to see some snow flying in the air with increased winds from the northwest. As of this afternoon (12:10 p.m.) there was very little activity in our region, which made me wonder if we are going to incur the Weather Channel jinx.
Now, however, the snow is flying. The Weather Channel is calling for more than a foot of snow over 7,000 feet to fall overnight, which makes me nervous that we might not see anything. As of now this forecaster is going to stick to his Tuesday forecast and limit snow totals to under 10 inches. I hope that I am wrong.
As for this weekend, it should be a great couple of days for the Honda Session to take place at Golden Peak. After this storm passes through, temperatures will begin to rise and we might even see that gigantic star we call the sun. As I said, temperatures will be in the high 20s and low 30s through the weekend, making it an enjoyable spectator and athlete event.
I, however, will be traveling to the home of one of my favorites, the late John Denver.
A group of guys are going to a little place called Asssspen for the weekend. I hope there is still some freshness for us to gobble up. Hope everyone gets to ski this weekend, and take the time to get over to the "East Side" and watch the athletes get their huck on.
