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. Then no snow at all on December 6.

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