Winter is now deeply entrenched in spite of some exceptionally warm days and spring-like temperatures. We still need snow, but selfishly, I am pleased not to have it.
We need the moisture right now for we had a long, dry summer. However, we will need rain badly by the time spring and more tourists return to the mountains because the large amount of dry grass will present a wildfire problem this spring.
