    We didn't get anywhere close to 10 feet!

    Didn't get 10", either ... It was probably more like 5 or 6 inches. The Weather Service said that there was light rain and 35°f when I was out before daylight, trying to get it off the backsteps! I didn't realize that it was raining until I checked the WS webpage after going back in. There was so much wet slush falling off the tree branches that I was getting soaked out there!

    Still right at 100% of normal at higher elevations. I'm so relieved because it's so warm for this time of year. The top inch or 2 of the soil froze several weeks earlier but then thawed. I really think that we may get through the winter without the ground freezing. I do not remember that ever happening. I may have not noticed sometime over the last 50 years. There was a winter in the early 1970's when I wasn't here that was described to me as "very open."

    Maybe that was a winter like this one. Maybe when the lava was flowing on the Columbia Plateau and forming all that basalt .... Okay, I haven't been around here (or, anywhere else) that long ...

    @digitS' , we didn't get any rain, but the snow started getting wetter before it finally stopped. I had to get it off my cattle panel hay "barn" and the cp wood shed before it sat too long and they began to sag. The sun and blue sky's were sure pretty afterward. :)

    Yes, a very pretty afternoon - no wind!

    The neighbor and I was talking over the snow shovel and rock salt. Gossiping about a young guy in the neighborhood - showed up 2 years ago. That person is from North Dakota.

    We were saying how there might not be much more winter snow for us to shovel. I suggested that our new neighbor probably thinks that he moved to Florida, or something!
