Global Warming My Ass: Early Winter Storms Unleash Fury

Is this a sign of things to come for the 2008/2009 winter? Or was this merely a cruel tease? Winter storms slammed into much of the Northwest and Rocky Mountain region’s over the weekend. Needless to say, this quickly accelerated the stoke process for skiers and snowboarders who have been waiting patiently all summer for Old Man Winter to get his booty back over to this part of the world.

Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, and Colorado were all among the states to get a very early pounding from this years first introduction from winter. And we’re not talking about just dustings of snow either. Anywhere from 3 to 11 inches had accumulated by Sunday evening in the Greater Salt Lake City area with more on the way. Boise, Idaho got a dose of the earliest measurable snowfall in Boise since record-keeping began in 1898. The Sierra’s in Northern California got a healthy dose of early winter as well.

So will it last? Will we have mid-winter conditions in many of these locations by the time Halloween gets here? Nah, probably not. But at the very least, if nothing else, this weekend’s winter tickle let us know it won’t be long until we’ll be strapping in for the season’s first runs.

Get ready, get pumped, and do whatever you need to do to prepare yourself to go bigger than ever this winter. It’s almost here my friends!
