Washington is doing just fine.

The Colorado winter IS going to end well below average. We do not get one "miracle" storm that changes everything over night. It is going to be a sub standard winter. It keeps looking worse as the year goes on. The good news is that the spring can be crazy good. There was a season where we had a pretty pathetic snow year. 92-93 maybe? Not nearly as bad as this, but pretty crappy none the less. Then spring hit. By closing dates in April, ski areas were reporting a snow pack 160% of normal. It was huge. Many of them decided to stay open into May to try to make up some of that business they lost in December-February. So you never know.

At least in Utah their predicting a possible\hopeful change to the normal jet stream flow\pattern around the 19th, hopefully this impacts Colorado in a good way too. Been stuck in this HP\ridge since early November f'ing sucks, La Nina's is being stingy bitch this winter. :-(

YOU SIR have a bad attitude!!! :-) J\K

At this point even though my hopes have been dashed repeatedly I'll take any wiff of f'ing good news I can get just so I don't go on a snow drought frustration rampage and start hurting people.

Anybody hear about the whole China pollution thing. Supposedly China's pollution is creating warmer temps which carry over to Alaska and down across the U.S. I know that's how the weather pattern normally goes, think it's called the jet stream, From China up towards Ak and then down across the U.S. I'm no expert here so easy on the correcting.

Wouldn't make sense as to why it is just now happening. China has been shitty for a while and the past three winters have been record breaking. Maybe I can make up some 2012 bull shit to justify this weather. END OF THE WORLD PEOPLE!!!!! AND NO SNOW UNTIL THE END!!!

I don't know about pollution, but I do know China fucks with their weather a lot. Shooting shit into the sky to induce rain over drought starved farmlands.

Not sure if that's enough to fuck with everything world wide, but one can imagine it does.
