I guess we're not having that early Spring afterall, awoke to a few new inches of snow and still falling.Sacramento only warmed to 53 yesterday. At this time last year they'd already had 19 days of 70+. This year: 0
Good it will keep them down there and in town.
Looks like this will be our last night of 32º or below. Trees are budding out and the grass is greening up a little more each day. I may need to start watering by the end of the month.
Winter's unrelenting storms built up a substantial Sierra snowpack and are expected to fill the lake for the first time in 11 years.

Just a years difference....http://www.laketahoenews.net/2015/03/low-lake-level-changing-life-at-lake-tahoe/Legend has it, explorers in search of the Pacific ocean asked a local Nevada tribe where "big water" is located, 'using hands and open arms to describe vast amounts of water' and they were told up there, pointing to the Sierra Nevada mountain range.Tahoe is the word used in the local Indian language for Big Water.It's not the Pacific by any stretch, but to the locals, it just as well be, it's pretty damn large for a mountain lake.
Damn that GW. If the lake is to low it GW If it too high it GW. The old people living around the lake area know it’s just Mother Nature at work.
Very heavy rain this A.M. there calling for 1" of rain this A.M. That's a lot of rain for my area even for one day. The dry framers will love it.
