In Case You Missed It...

March 1st, 2009:

Yup, February was a dry one.  In fact, is was the least snowy February on record in Denver.  Denver International Airport only receieved a trace of snow for the entire month.  Colorado Springs and Pueblo weren't far behind, picking up .6" and .4" of snow for the entire month.  Where does this put us, as we enter March?  Colorado Springs is over 15" behind on snowfall and Pueblo is 19" below normal.

March can be a fickle month, producing all four seasons in a short period of time.  However, it looks like we will start very warm.  High temperatures for the first full week of March will be well above normal, with record highs possible early this week.  As I have blogged before, I don't see this pattern changing anytime soon.  Fire Danger will be very high, so please use extreme caution if working or recreating outdoors with anything flammable.

    This is BY FAR the worst (driest) winter I've seen here in the sprins in the last 35 years. It is very depressing. Can you say D R O U G H T?

    You've been telling the local community for days about the fire danger, yet some high-ranking genious at Fort Carson decides to go ahead and exercise with live weapons and lots of off-road vehicles with hot exhausts and starts a fire that gets away - imagine that! I hope the local agencies that had to respond send the bill to Fort Carson so that local taxpayers don't have to foot the bill....

    Not surprised...we saw this coming last November. I still think we will have a record low winter precipitation season.
