      Hardrockers,

      Happy New Year. I hope all had a great holiday.

      As you can see below, December saw a lot of snow in the San Juans. The
      Mineral Creek Snotel web site provides a graphic showing the past two years
      snow water content compared to "normal":http://tinyurl.com/62a4zo
      The long range temperature and precipitation forecasts have just been
      updated. Due to a "mild La Nina" forming in the Pacific, the spring is
      forecast to be warmer and slightly dryer than average for our area. So, get
      your Hardrock applications in.
