Snowfall---February 27th 9:21 A.M.

"What a difference a day makes, twenty four little hours".
From the song written by Maria Grever & Stanley Adams
A much-needed snow has been falling since we woke up at 5:30 this morning.
Big Bear's current winter, as of today, has brought less than half of the precipitation of our previous driest year on record, 2002.
We're still hoping for a couple of big 'March Miracle' storms but this one is definitely timely and appreciated.
About 3 inches has fallen here thus far but the storm seems to be dissipating now.
We had another 4 inches last week, which melted as soon as the sun came out, and we'll happily take every inch we can get.
Our daughter Jamie called from Lake Tahoe last night to tell us she had over 4 feet of fresh snow at their place, and it was still falling.
We are a mountain and snow loving family.
I posted today's wintry scene in good old-fashioned black & white for effect.

I can totally relate to wanting more snow. Up here in North Wisco and North Minnesota we NEED the snow. We just got our first decent storm of the season. That's unheard of. I have a bad feeling the fires may be bad in the Boundary Waters this year, especially because last summer was hot and dry.

Wishing you a snowy March.

Very nice photo you put up today. (They always are -- what am I saying?) My consistently dry lakebed knows what you mean about wanting more precipitation.

we have had our share here in upstate ny but it is always a joy to see the snow gracing the other states as well...

what a superb statement, "we are a mountain and snow loving family." I wouldn't want one without the other !!

Like Burdockboy said, we're finally getting some decent snowfall here in Minnesota. Schools are closed today and I didn't really feel like making the commute to work either, so I'm at home.

Love your snow photo. Those snow-sprinkled trees look magical. HOWEVER, I hope the cold weather is over here in Berea, KY.
