Snowfall Here Not A Record

March 6, 2014 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Town of Jackson No Comments
snow shovelling

(RIVERTON)  While many residents of Jackson Hole by now are muttering unkind things about “Old Man Winter” as they shovel their driveways again and again, they may be interested to learn that this is by no means a record year – nor is the most recent snowfall a record.  That’s not to say the snow accumulation at Jackson Hole Resort isn’t some of the best seen in years.  In fact, February was the second-snowiest since the resort began keeping records.  Here in the Town of Jackson, however, the year’s total so far is 69.3 inches according to the National Weather Service office in Riverton.  That compares with a mean of 60 inches, but pales in comparison to the record for the same period set during the winter of 1966/67 when the town piled up 153.3 inches of the white stuff.  Farther north, Moose has received 146.3 inches of snow so far this year which comes nowhere near the record 282 inches seen during the winter of 1964/65.  However, Severe Warning Meteorologist Chris Jones quickly points out the season isn’t over yet and the March accumulation is already well on its way to meeting the norm for the entire month.

    I don’t understand why it’s happening now, when the temperatures are dropping well below zero, but my golden retriever’s blowing her coat. In a big way. And it’s not just her. Our collie’s doing the same thing, and to a much bigger degree. At least the golden has some abilities that allow me to overlook […]
