Certainly, anything will help this year's snowpack, which stands at 85 percent of normal, said Mike Gillespie of the Natural Resources Conservation Service.
Last year at this time, the snowpack was a grim 65 percent of the average of the past 30 years.
The wettest basin in the state is the Gunnison River Basin, at 88 percent of average snow-water equivalent, according to figures provided Friday by the Natural Resources Conservation Service. The snow-water equivalent is a measure of how much water is in the snow.
The Upper Colorado Basin is at 87 percent of average. The Yampa and White basins are at 83 percent, and the San Miguel, Dolores, Animas and San Juan river basins are 79 percent of normal.
At 71 percent and on the Front Range, the South Platte River Basin is the driest in the state, and the Arkansas River Basin is at 81 percent of normal. In the San Luis Valley, the Upper Rio Grande Basin marked 72 percent of normal.
Exacerbating the low snowpack numbers are low reservoir levels, Gillespie said.
The case against a couple accused in the slaying of a man whose body was dismembered and stuffed into two duffel bags has suffered a major setback.
A Knox County judge ruled Tuesday that items including blood evidence and a chain saw discovered at the couple's West Knoxville apartment were seized by investigators illegally and can't be used.
Marc Joseph Below and Marissa Rae Moore, both 22, face trial next month in Knox County Criminal Court in the Oct, 20, 2001, shooting death of 26-year-old Dustin Neal.
Hikers on Black Mountain in Cumberland County found part of Neal's body the following day before the rest of his body was discovered Oct. 22, 2001.

Were the hikers on Black Mountain that found the body parts actually and intentionaly highpointing or just hiking on the mountain that happens to be the highest in the state?

I think this refers to a Black Mountain in TN. Another Black Mountain is KY's highest. (Did I just accept a bait for a question of what this has to do with highpointing?)

There's also a Black Mt. (opposite Mt. Ainslie) in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) near Canberra (part of which is now toast, or ashes); and probably more of them. I think Jackson, N.H. has a ski area called Black Mt., where I skied w/my dad in the 50s and learned to snowplow or wedge, leading to parallel skiing in the 70s.

A quick check of the index in my copy of AMC's "White Mountain Guide" (ironic, no?) reveals 3 Black Mountains, one each in the Benton, Jackson and Sandwich Ranges. NH alone has at least 3!
