I missed that the ratios would be high. The Kuchera ratio on LI was 10-12, but I read somewhere it was closer to 18. I think it was Ryan Hanrahans tweet.

edit: not 18 but 28:1. Ryan's tweet


I had 16:1 ratios but I have to tell you...it wasnt fluffy one bit. It was snowball making kind, clumpy, and heavy. Stuck to all branches and melted fast. It wasnt the typical high ratio snow composite.

My only thinking is the low level warmth changed its texture?
Fell fluffy down to 1000' on little liquid then maybe then became clumpy and wet at surface?

Interesting to remember for future. I never thought 16:1 would be heavy and wet. Dec 16th I had 13:1 and I used a broom to clean the snow. Couldnt today.
