Seems like it’s been mild just about everywhere (except for those extreme storms in the midwest recently). Here on the Idaho/Wyoming border, we’re at about 95% of normal snowpack, but it’s certainly been a warmer, wetter snowpack than we’re used to. Not many really cold days (as in sub-zero) at all this winter.

Still, after a few winters in a row of huge snowfall, it’s fine with me. And the wildlife are catching a break. I’ve heard we had something like 90% mule deer fawn mortality last winter, due in large part to a huge amount of snowfall that didn’t let up till the end of May.
