Don't think there was so much as a single snowflake or raindrop in Grand Junction. If it happened, it happened while I wasn't looking.

Funny how localized it can be. We ended up with a solid 7 inches, but as little as 3 miles (and 300 feet elevation difference) away there was the 3-4 inches you speak of.

I believe we ended up with something around 5-6, but that's just a guess because I didn't measure it this morning. Mother nature is always unpredictable so it's no surprise snow amounts can vary in a small area.

Unbelievable how the DVR media dry humped our non-event storm. 3'' is all we got. Needless to say, they all had egg on their faces this a.m.

Yep, we sure didn't get our 9.5" here. Half that maybe.

Egg on their faces and money in their bank accounts! The sales force probably tells their potential advertisers that we'll be calling for a big storm....now is a good time to advertise. Get more bang for your buck. It's win-win for the media and their customers. The only loser is the gullible public as usual. More time in front of the TV, less time living life along with the disappointment of having only 3 inches when 9 inches is predicted.

Snowing this morning, a dusting on the ground so far. A weak system is moving over.

Same thing in Fruita, Jim. Been flaking on and off. The good news is that there has been decent amounts of snow on the Grand Mesa the last 24 hours.
