You folks always seem to enjoy weather and snow comparisons. And I find it fun to scroll back through older photos and be reminded of the differences myself. So here's one for March! The above photo is today, March 19, 2020. As you can see, there's still a good bit of snow around. It's about my waist level in most areas where it has not been shoveled higher. Below is
March 16, 2019. That winter broke a lot of snowfall records! As you can see, we were really buried deep at this time a year ago. :)

This shot is indeed my house in case you were wondering! That was heading into my very first spring as I'd moved in November 26, 2014. At the time it was parked just downhill of it's current location due to not being able to move it up the hill in the winter and the ground being snow covered when it arrived. Additionally I had yet to stain the exterior grey to better blend in with our surroundings. So it does look rather different!
As you can see, all the March snowpacks look rather different too. I thought this years might be a lot more sparse as we had some unseasonably warm weather a couple weeks ago that was melting and compacting the snowpack. But this past week we got almost 25 inches of fresh snowfall which despite being very wet and compacting again rapidly, beefed up that pile a little. This is how averages are created, by lots of variations each year. How does this winter/spring compare to past years in your area?
