2021 started off with a little more snow than normal, and it seemed to last a little longer, too. So we were still skiing into April.

And then it got dry. June snow levels seemed below normal and the temps were definitley higher. Six days in a row of over 100°F in Boise in June.

After a horribly smoky and hot August, we got the first snow in my yard (5010') on September 28.

By any measure it has been a great year, but I note that in 2021 I spent 34 nights on the ground.
