State of the Snow

Here is an image showing how much snow is on the ground (as of April 3, 2012) compared to normal for this date. This isn't necessarily comparing this year's total snowfall to an average year, but is rather showing how much snow is on the ground right now compared to average. Good news to the north, not-so-good news to the south. Pretty typical of a La Nina season. It's the areas in the middle -- Tahoe, Utah, Colorado -- that could go either way during a La Nina. Last year, these areas did very, very well. This year, not so much. Oh, weather...why do you tease us so?
