While on the phone he tried to check to see if the new report was out, but the government site was down. I'll try to click it later.
He did say it dumped a wet snow last night with more on the way. He also mentioned southwest Colorado gets most of their moisture in March and April. Man am I ready for a little fishing.
I hope you're right about getting most of their moisture in Mar/Apr, it doesn't look very good right now. Here is the snowpack report as of today Mar 9 and most of the basins in CO reporting in the 70% range.
