A lot of snow is better!

Keep it coming.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Close to a foot at my house on Sunday, powder at first, then "Sierra cement", wet heavy stuff. Anybody want to come shovel?
Planning on going up the hill in a couple days, I'll let you know what East Fork looks like.
7 degrees this AM...anybody want to bring some wood?

Wow, at foot at your house is good stuff! Stay warm my friend.
Pack it in, Pack it out...or have a Wrangler do it for you.

Not to be a Little Debbie Downer, but I just read that the eastside is still below normal on snowpack.   Of course February and March should still provide lots of precipitation.

I drove up to the gate at East Fork a couple days ago, maybe two feet of snow there, I had to dig my way into the spring to get H20. Ran into Jim King the same day, he was on his way back down from the Lake, he says there's four to five feet up there.
It's better than it's been in years....we won't catch up in one season anywy, so be happy with what we've got.

At least with what we got, that "special" spring will get a refill! Wish I was close enough to fill a jar.

A snowpack report I saw last week showed Rock Creek Lake at 95% of normal.  Snow depths that I have seen in the area would concur with the report.  It's suppose to warm up for a few weeks so hopefully it dosnt start to melt off early.

And down here in So. Calif were looking at over a week of 80 plus temps and no rain in the forecast for the next few weeks...Weather folks said El Nino was going to be the Godzilla of rain and so far its been a complete failure..

The last couple days have been unusually warm, 47 degs. at my house yesterday. The snow is melting, Tuff camp went from over my shoes last week to almost dry today.
It's definitely interesting.

Read an article in the O.C. Register today concerning the snow melt in the Sierras. Seams that the low temperatures at night are holding the snow pack. Great news! There will also be more snow up there from mid-week on, plus a great chance of rain here in So. Cal as we need it.
