First Snow

Today was our first snow at the Pinery. We received about one inch of the white stuff, there isn't much moisture in this snow but it is a taste of what is on the way. On average we receive about 4.1 inches of snow in October. And the average first snow fall is on the 15th of the month. Historically there has been many years that October brings unexpected blizzards dumping numerous feet of snow over the Colorado front range. One of Denver's most famous October snow storms was the "Bronco Blizzard" which occurred on October 15th 1984 during a Monday Night Football game. Once the storm passed it dumped over 22 inches of snow over Denver and the suburbs.
