Shutting Down for the Night

We've opted not to move the DOW tonight.  We're shutting it down for a couple of hours to sleep, but tonight's storm is expected to come in overnight and we don't want to miss it.  Thus, we have a couple of students catching some shut-eye in the truck and they will get up early to fire it up once the next storm begins to move in.

The storm today (Saturday) was a bit of a bust at Alta.  Looks like a 6 inch storm total at Alta-Collins with .75" of snow-water equivalent.  Most of that snow fell in dribs and drabs, with the heaviest stuff coming in the late night and early morning hours on Saturday.   As discussed earlier, precipitation shadowing by the Oquirrh Mountains appeared to play an important role in today's event.

Signing off for the night...
