Second Snowiest March on Record

Well, we can count the winter of 2007-2008 Spokane's third snowiest winter on record. A whopping 87.8 inches of snow fell this winter and we are not through yet. Coeur d'Alene's snowfall reports are between 178 and 220 inches for the winter. Out of the 11 days since the start of spring we have had snow 10 out of 11.

On Saturday we woke to 5 inches of that fluffy white stuff and roads slicker than greased lightning. Lots of fender benders everywhere. That storm also dumped more than a foot of snow in parts of Northern Idaho. At Spokane International Airport at least 5-6 inches fell. Snowfall totals at the airport for March was 15.8 inches. The record for snowfall in March was set in 1897 with 16.4 inches.

According to the weatherman we are to see milder temperatures real soon (I will believe it when I see it). I am looking forward to temperatures in the 80's and 90's although I will probably have to wait until that one day in July when summer begins and ends.

I had some picture of the snowstorm but for some reason when I went to download them from my camera to the computer my pea brain failed me and therefore I have no pictures at this time. Could it be "oldtimers" settin' in.
