After The Storm…

After a doozy of a system that tracked across The Northern Plains and into The Mid-Atlantic, the snowpack across The United States is starting to look a lot like winter…

Currently, 39.4% of the lower 48 is covered with snow, which is up 25% from November. But ,if you’re comparing this same week with 2009, then there are some interesting things to note: The following is the snowpack from this time last year.

This time last year, 50.1% of the lower 48 had snow on the ground. That’s right, over half of America had an average snowdepth of 3.2 inches. The main comparison is that the west coast had been slammed with snow, and lots of it while the snow seems to have shifted some towards the east coast for this year. So keep your fingers crossed that the west coast will start to see the snow arrive. Why? Because much of the west coast relies on snowmelt in the spring for their drinking water.
