Finally we received a decent snow here at the Pinery. The last 5 months we have seen above average temps and below average precipitation because of La Nina. Just last night we received 8 inches of snow. A much welcome snow storm because with out it we would of been out winter watering off our frost free system this week. Here is a little re-cap of the last few snow storms at the Pinery.
- Our last snow from last winter was on May 12th 2010 we received 3 inches
- Our first snow was on November 10th we received 3 inches
- December 30th we received 4 inches
- And today January 10th we received 8 inches.
I am hoping that this snow will stick around a little and keep the course covered.
