My estimate (and I’ve been sooo close .... ): 227.5
The epic 2018 continues and as of 16/8 the SC depth of 203 cm is only 30 cm below Yr 2000 on 17/8. With more falling this w/e who knows if that 2000 will be exceeded. Only 58 cm to go. Also Kelpie B's post re Riverina droughts and good snow years See Snowy Hydro for 1968!!......W
Upgrade to 255 for next Thursday ..feeling generous
With the current falls, plus some more next week, we could be looking at a peak depth in the high 200's. Do we dare to dream of a 3m tally?
Cracking season. But that was to be expected the moment I did my ACL in Feb....
This weeks measurement will be interesting. We have had a lot of snow since the last measurement, with a lot of wind. There are areas where it has drifted and ridged, where there has been a huge increase. However, there are some areas where there has been a definite loss, as snow has literally been blown somewhere else. The measurement could be anything, depending on exactly what has happened at the measurement site.
Having said that, 230cm is my guess
Go hard or go home... 283 (haven't checked if others have said)
I want to upgrade
243cm I reckon.
I don't want to upgrade but I need to upgrade considerably ………..268
I am interested to see what today’s wind will do to the measurnent. Perisher XC trails have areas which have metre plus high drifts whilst other areas have been stripped to shurbbery. I’m hoping Spencer’s has some nice big drifts!
I'm pretty sure the measurement site at Spencers Creek is actually about 20 sites spread across about an acre.
Could be wrong, someone here will know for sure.
Snowy hydro are out measuring today, so we should have a result this afternoon
The man hole type thingy near the ridge is still a foot above the snow.
Yep. That is a wind exposed area. We have had a lot of wind with dry light snow. There are lots of exposed areas that are significantly less than last year. However, there are other areas where it has dropped and accumulated where the depth is much greater than last year. Thats what makes this so hard to predict
239cm is my educated guess from a far....
Haha, that manhole is my default depth gauge
I nearly took a photo and posted the pic last weekend
It might be, but I have seen it way more covered than this season. Do you think that the seasons where it's less covered are more windy? Or the wind direction is more likely to scour that area?
Well we have had some decent wind blown this year, but no more windy than any other year.
Wont see 3m this year, the tide is turning now. I agree, have seen more cover, but is not bad. Back soon.
I think I read recently it's the windiest year for a decade.
Have you seen the concrete pond, sewer type tanks 100m up on the blue calf t?
Have to disagree, probably one of the windiest years I have seen in recent times
In addition the wind has occurred after a super hard freeze event, which resulted in a hard crust which has persisted all season. Fresh snow has trouble sticking to these areas
In my limited experience this year has definitely been a tad breezier than I’ve experienced thus far in Aus.
Just spoke to someone who went to Charlottes yesterday and the road marker poles are buried in spots. They must be close to 3m?
I am thinking........247.7cm
What's going on with the reading this week - damn it I wanna know what it is!!!
It was late last week too. I wonder why it they are delaying publishing the reading? Is it that they are taking it later in the day or something else?
Snow's so deep, it's taking longer for them to get to the bottom!?
I like the way you think
If you’d like to join Snowy Hydro’s team they are looking for a hydrographer.
They measured it yesterday, 22nd. I saw there vehicle / trailer parked at perisher, and saw the skidoos going up the road. Not sure what the delay is? FIre up the conspiracy theories
They sank in the depths...still haven't surfaced.
They tried to remember the numbers off the top of their head, forgot, and had to go back and do it again.
My guess 237.1
The number goes to 4 digits, ie 1000cm, and the website can't cope
....they decided to do some back country instead.
They just forget to post it. I emailed them once when they forgot and it was up in minutes. Its for internal use so putting the figure up is not a priority.
The snow is so deep management threw out the readings and have demanded a new measurement be taken tomorrow.
This is very late, may have all gone home from the office
It's a power thing. They know we are waiting. This is the 4th time today I've checked this thread.
