For those of us here in Northern California, we are in our rainy season. We depend on the winter rains and snow pack in the Sierra Mountains to supply our water from about May-Nov. each year. Well, we are getting ready for a big dump of rain and snow this coming weekend. The forecast is for 1-2 inches and up to 4-8 inches in the coastal mountains. Snow levels will start out high (7500-8000ft), so there could be lots of melting snow to feed the rivers. The Sierras are expected to get between 3 and 6+ feet of new wet heavy snow! Ye Ha!
Too bad my back is such a mess, I would go up after Christmas. This could mean a very long ski season, so I have hopes. Not too many shopping days before Christmas, better get out there!
