Still lots of snow... I mean lots

This is a photo I took Friday of the trinket igloo on Monarch Pass. The central Rockies still have a yeti-chocking load of snow... so much that water managers have drained Blue Mesa Reservoir by more than half in anticipation of a deluge. That thing usually takes years to fill.
The flood isn't coming yet though, today forecasts call for up to a foot of fresh powder in the mountains.
