  • Where oh where have the big snow of yester year gone? The ranch has recorded 81 inches here so far this year, which is much better than last year, but our annual average is 120 inches, so we have a way to go. We still  have time for a big storm or two, and the high mountains do have enough snow to keep our streams running longer than last year. The acequia watchers monitor this constantly.
