This has been quite the winter for our country. On Saturday night when we went to bed there was no snow and it was lightly raining. We woke up to about 3" of accumulation on the ground. Throughout the day it warmed up and melted to where there was almost no snow when we went to bed. This morning we wake up, and you guessed it- another maybe 2" of accumulation which is vigorously melting as I type.
I was supposed to go to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon this morning for work for a Congressional Subcommittee meeting on uranium mining/withdrawl of federal lands from uranium mining, but fortunately it was postponed. It was scheduled at 10:00am, and it is about a four hour drive under good conditions, but with the snow we probably would have had to leave before 5:00am to get there in time. No thanks!
