Sadly, too, the high winds that have come with the last couple of storms have negated much of the benefit of the snowfall that did occur. I talked to a fellow that I know who is well-connected to the farming/ranching community in southeast Colorado. He lamented that, in most places, the snowstorm that dropped 6" of snow in SE Colorado a couple of weeks ago did almost no good, as the high winds blow most of the snow away before it ever had a chance to soak into the ground.

Double H wrote: In Mesa County, where storms like this in March I fondly refer to as the 50/50/50 syndrome (50 snowflakes, 50 raindrops, and 50 mile an hour winds), we only got the wind. Grr!'

And more wind today. As I was freezing my butt off, cringing against the effing wind on my walk today, I was thinking that I was more comfortable taking walks in January when the temp was 8 degrees with no wind, then I am in the 40 degress crap with a relentless, desiccating wind howling in my face. If I was happy with relentless wind, I would have stayed in Virginia Beach.

Pueblo had a second round of snow and it was cold yesterday. I took two pictures.



This was by my house when the snow started.




My backyard this morning.

Overall I had about 4-8 inches of snow at my house this weekend but with the wind you would never know it.

It's funny josseppie that you are always telling people how warm and banana belted Pueblo is and every time we turn around you are posting pictures of the latest white out, howling winds and deep freeze temperatures in Pueblo.

I agree it is funny but keep in mind this thread is like Facebook. On Facebook people only post the good things going on in their lives making it look better then it is. Here I only post the snow storms Pueblo gets not the ones that miss us or the regular days when it's just sunny.

Always looking for the dark underside, eh?

@Kat....that's his unique contribution to the Colorado pages. We've come to expect it. It wouldn't feel right without a daily dose of the dark underside, in this miserable place called Colorado.

A warming trend will continue through the weekend, while isolated to scattered showers develop each afternoon over northwest Colorado and the mountains of northeast Utah. A strong Pacific storm will move through the area Sunday night through Tuesday, with rain and snow showers becoming likely

KRDO is reporting that we could get another cold snap next week with snow and highs only is the 30's, if we are lucky. That would be fine by me.

No, just the hard truth. I just spent several days looking at ground in an area of southern Colorado where soil moisture is normally 2 to 3 feet deep this time of year--and there is virtually NONE right now. A farmer put it to me this way, "We're going to need almost three times the normal irrigation water to recover soil moisture to normal. We're going to get, at most, 60% of normal this year." It's unfortunate that, sometimes, reality sucks so much that no one wants to hear it or heed it, but that is where we are.
