You mean to tell me you actually WANT tourists now?

*insert numerous quotes of BA telling possible CO visitors to fuck off here*

Look out people, this is a sign that things are getting REALLY REALLY bad.

Telling you people not to come here is one thing telling tourists not to is another don't misconstrue those two.

I'm waiting to see if the old houses in Old Dillon will show up the lake is so low. Also might try to see if we can drive around the lake on the old road I can see most of the road under the water. If I die doing this remember me!

Yeah, it's gonna be really tough on the resort towns if we have two historically shitty seasons back to back.

Man, I hope it turns out to be more than a wet fart. At this point we need to get feet of snow...

A little winter weather pattern would be nice.

I ventured outside @ 4am yesterday morning and there was frost on the car windshield!

...I quickly went back inside.

Holy Shit guys!,

Open snow just updated their forecast. The first Bit of optimism in a while:

SNOW! Yes, I said it. SNOW! SNOW! SNOW! It's going to SNOW! Yaaahhhooo! Ok, so I'm not promising Snowmaggedeon Part 2, but there is a good likelihood of snow on Monday and the pattern *could* shift to a snowier one by the second week of December. This is a lot more optimism than I've had for a while, so while I'll try not to get carried away, right now I'm happier than a witch in a broom factory.

A big west-coast storm will pump tons of moisture from Tahoe northward and northeast from Wednesday (today) through Sunday. Areas in the path of this moisture will measure the snow in feet, but snow levels will stay pretty high through Sunday, so the snow will be on the heavier side and lower elevation resorts in the west will see a rain/snow mix. Little pieces of storm energy will eject out of the main storm over the west coast and head northeastward, but these will just brush Colorado. One of these little pieces of energy will bring an inch or two of snow to Colorado on Friday night in the far northern mountains, but this is nothing to get excited about.

The strongest piece of the main west-coast storm will head east on Sunday night and Monday and should bring decent snow to many Colorado mountains, primarily from Aspen north to I-70 and the Wyoming border. The best time for snow looks to be from Sunday night through Monday night, with the cold front passing late Sunday night or Monday morning. It's a bit too early to know exact snow amounts and I think the American GFS model is forecasting the storm to be too strong and too far south, so I don't expect to see the amounts the GFS is promising. But as I said yesterday, a good 2-4 or 3-6 inch snow is likely, and there could be more in favored areas. Here's what the storm looks like on Sunday night:

6 inches of snow would help open stuff up, especially if its followed by a real storm in the next 2-3 weeks. hopefully the 2nd weekend in dec is a good one.
