USFS Snow Cover map

I think this is a new resource, at least from USFS.

That's certainly a bit more explore-able than the usual NOHRSC page: http://tinyurl.com/northwest-snow

Too bad the USFS doesn't include clickable SNOTEL sites on their interface.

Intriguing the Spirit Lake SNOTEL cell is white on the USFS map. Looks like it got as low as 10" a couple days ago, before this last storm.

Yeah, something weird happened the other day. It's like it's showing meters instead of inches.
