Both Karen and I wish everyone a great start for 2016. We'll be with friends early in the evening and then back home before the New Year. It is absolutely beautiful in the mountains. We had a fabulous White Christmas and look forward to lots more snow and good health into the coming year.
the back-deckSo far the snow-talisman has been forth-giving. Currently the entire (130 survey stations) Sierra's snow-pack is at 141% of normal. But I'm hoping for lots more snow and I personally would like to see a minimum of 150% of normal for both snow-pack and water-content into April. Then we may catchup for the last 4 years. The current water-content is at 136% of normal for the Sierra Nevada. The latter being more important than snow-pack. So bring-it-on!
