    Don't forget October of 2005; the summit had nearly 80 inches of show. Or a "Dick Clark Age" as they like to say. From the F-6 so far (and the snow on the ground this morning), we are well on our way to a big February precip total.

    What's the conversion from rain to snow? 1 inch rain = 10 inches of snow?

    If it was colder, we'd be buried right now!

    They turn the snow into water and then measure that to find the water equivalent.

    Which means a split pot if we ended right now...
    But it doesn't!

    We could use a little more snow - but not much. Then I would be in the running.

    Spyboy-"What's the conversion from rain to snow? 1 inch rain = 10 inches of snow?"
    As Mike D said, "They turn the snow into water and then measure that to find the water equivalent."

    The procedure used to find the water equivalence of snow is to get the precip can and measure the snow in the can in 5 spots then average and record this reading. Next a measured amount of hot water is poured into the can to melt the snow. After the snow is totally melted, the water is poured back into the graduated cylinder (basically a very tall calibrated beaker) and the reading of the level, minus the amount of water added to melt the snow, is recorded to give the water equivalence of the snow in inches.
