From the Sky-Hi Daily News: “While other parts of Colorado are experiencing below-average precipitation, Grand County is enjoying a comfortable snowpack at 119 percent of average, according to Mike Gillespie, Snow Survey supervisor of the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS)…The Colorado Basin is running behind last year’s snowpack, which had steady increases through April. Estimated to be at 90 percent of last year, ‘It’s close, but still a little under. You don’t have the same cushion you had this time last year to try and endure a dry spell,’ he said.”
