Yesterday I was complaining that I could not find any visible signs of Spring up here in the Robson Valley. To further re-enforce my argument I plodded my way down to the pasture where I normally measure how much snow is on the ground to document the depth of the snow. As you can see from the ruler (left side) we still have 23 inches (58 cm) of the white stuff that needs to melt before we see the ground.
There is more than that in places where it piles up because of drifting or where the snow is blown from my snowblower. Snow still thickly covers the ground.
