it was true champaign powder. chest deep in spots with my snowboard contact the firm snow underneath now. we were "bulldozing" through huge drifts and making huge clouds of snow fly up into the winds. but, this is rare here in spokane. looks like more snow coming to and it should be just as cold.The snow in western Washington is of the wet kind. Here in Butte we get the powder, a foot of the snow here will maybe weigh as much as an inch of Western Washington snow. I shoveled a path out to the n cars and mail box and I didn't even get tired doing it. Where as where you all live I would of been beat.
The trouble with powder, is that it don't pack worth a damn and it sucks trying to make snow balls to throw.
