      Greetings Hardrockers,

      Not only was December very snowy in Silverton, there was a lot of
      water content, more than 5 inches. It's been really cold up there,
      too. Last week, the temp went to -26F twice and twice more to -20F.
      The old timers believe that July will be milder.

      The Mineral Creek Snotel web site provides a graphic showing the past
      two years snow water content compared to "normal":
