As predicted...

Our weather boffins came through with a true bill, for once. They had called for ten inches, but it's stopped now at about five. They're now saying we might get another couple of days of on and off snow.

The High Plains are both "precipitate" and "deliberative." Precipitate on a daily and hourly basis, and deliberative when it comes to the seasonal shifts. Storms can blow up in the middle of summer in a couple of hours notice, with temps going through the floor faster than you can keep up with. But as the seasons turn you can have one day at 70 and the next at 10. Tee-shirt weather one day and 10" of white stuff the next. It's part of the charm, as they say.
