Seems it was a snowier Jan for you then last year...

Here's to February bringing all of us in the midwest/upper midwest some quality precipitation. *cheers*

I'd prefer snow rather than rain, however. :)

Cheers indeed! Snow would be much more preferred over rain, too. We're getting into the time of year that more moisture is becoming abundant for us, so it is still a possibility. Although, it also means that warmer air might squelch any snow before it hits the ground.

Long term forecasts are showing a more active pattern for us. More precip (liquid) and warmer temps (50s and 60s)

WxWatcher ~ my water content of the 7 or so inches of snow/sleet was 1.48".

Happy Monday to you! Hope you all are doing well now! :)
