Honest to god, this is f$@%ing hilarious. Did we really just get another 51cm of snow?

OK, what's the deal. Just when things were looking up for the ski season in the Pacific North West, and we were having some epic pow days on the hill, it's now gone to +10 Celcius in the alpine! Hmmmm, spring time anyone?
