No March meltdown this year
FRISCO — Precipitation and temperatures were probably fairly close to average in March, but conditions stand in stark contrast to last year, when Colorado experienced record-high temperatures during the same month, setting the stage for a summer drought and a dangerous wildfire season. By late in the month last year, Dillon Reservoir was melted all along the edges, with dark, rotten ice across the rest of its surface. This year, the snow piled up throughout the month and kept the ice well insulated from the sun. It’s never boring in the mountains, is it?
