2006 - January 2007
Let it snow, let it snow....
UCAR photographer Carlye Calvin shot this photo of a tree
in her yard in Nederland on December 31. The holidays were
a giddy time for weather aficionados, as two major storms
dropped several feet of snow on the Front Range about a week
apart. On December 20-21, a whopping 26.0 inches of snow
were recorded at Boulder’s climate station, located
by NOAA’s offices on Broadway. Several days later,
on December 24, a light dusting of 1.9 inches was recorded.
And then, on December 28-29, another 14.9 inches fell from
the sky, bringing the 10-day total to an impressive 42.8
inches. With a monthly total of 45.5 inches, December 2006
officially qualifies as Boulder’s fifth snowiest calendar
month on record since 1893.
