The snowfall started up around here fairly early this morning, but it was hard to tell exactly when because it’s very light in intensity with tiny flakes.  We had snow for much of the morning, but by noon there was only 0.4 inches on the snowboard.  Then, we actually cleared out during the middle of the day before more snow came in this evening.  It was the same deceptive sort of snowfall as this morning however, only adding another 0.2 inches by 10:00 P.M.

We received more snow overnight than we did all day yesterday, and while this round of snow is slightly lower density, it’s still that same sort of dust made up of very small flakes.  I emptied the snow/rain gauge this morning and it managed to capture 0.07” of liquid.  This morning the sky is mostly clear but tiny snow crystals are still falling.
