In other news, we got a little bit of snow yesterday evening. It's the first frozen precipitation since early-to-mid March. That is odd for this time of year, because we usually alternate between rain and snow until April. Nonetheless, we had a heavy dusting this morning when I looked out the window.
Through 5 April A.D. 2007:
Days with snow cover: 89
Days with complete snow cover: 64
Total snowfall: 47 inches (120 centimeters)
Maximum snow depth: 24 inches (60 centimeters)
Lowest temperature: -2° Fahrenheit (-19° Celsius)
...okay that's enough information for one posting. My mind is still racing with thoughts, but I'll save them for another time.
