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.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
