Last season Mt Rose got 700”.
Well, for Swan Lake in Lemmon Valley it could be.
A couple minutes ago, it was pouring BUCKETS over here on the peninsula. Giant drops! Squalled for about 15 minutes, now stopped and sun poking through. Started raining about midnight and it is supposed to continue until tonight at midnight. YAY!!
Everything is greening up nicely.
Hike at Almaden Quicksilver scheduled for yesterday morning was cancelled.
The January warm spell had everybody squawking “DOOM!” but, fortunately, not so much “I TOLD you global warming is real.”
It’s normal California winter weather.
We haven’t heard much of anything about the Oroville dam lately, have we?

Damn global warming!
Now I know who stole our Snow this year ,LOL
LOL! Well, on the east side of “the hill” I had spring buds on my quaking aspens 2 weeks ago. Kinda not working out so well now. They’ll be just fine come actual spring.
Damn global warming!
I’ll keep you posted.
All right so far.
Didn’t JB fix that with excess high speed train money? No? LOL!
Don’t forget that the heavy rains will cause all sorts of fuel to grow and next October — FIRES! Yet another disaster. Then the fires will leave the hills exposed and the next rainy season will cause, you guessed it! MUDSLIDES!! Yet another disaster.
How did we get along without CNN and TWC panting endlessly about our disasters? It’s just normal business here in CA, like hurricanes and nor’easters elsewhere. Yawn.
