An additional 12 to 16 inches of snow is expected above 6,000 feet and eight to 12 inches below 6,000 feet.

South to southwest winds from 30 to 40 mph will gust at times to 60 mph, severely restricting visibility and bringing near blizzard conditions to elevations above 5,500 feet at times Sunday night into Monday.

BS Ranch Perspective

It seems that this is better late then never!! The winter storms that come now are all great for the economy locally, and the water shortages that we feel right now, so Mother Nature, bring it on, and lets Flood out and have some Rain Rain and snow snow snow...I suppose that we need the snow. because according to all the Snow that has melted down has been caused by the so called Global Warming of the planet, I suppose, that they can figure that they can turn it around and start the cycle all over again!!
