On the 14th, we got 5 to 6 inches of rain. It would take at least 30 to 40 inches of snow to melt down to 5 inches of water, or am I missing something.

Imagine the plow berms if all that rain was actually snow!

I’ve always wondered how much rain water the snow pack will hold before it releases water. Has kid I once took a pvc pipe into the snow pack, had 18” snow pack that produced 4 inches of water.

Roger does this when ever snow fall. He can tell you how much liquid precipitation we've gotten.

I'm out at 76. I shot a bit higher than our average.
That's funny Benny, overthunked, heh. We didn't get too slammed all at once, for such an abundant season the storms were well spaced apart.
If I remember, think it was that 2009-2010 winter.. that dumped 4-5 foot in just a few days? I was living on Wendy (not Anita then) they were running the giant snow blowers.

Last storm, for example - I measured 10.75" of snow and it melted to 0.90" of water.
But that was the freshly fallen snow. I haven't done it with the snowpack because usually the snow doesn't last very long around here.

As a retired career firefighter, always be aware that cities, counties, and states write and heavily advertise their spending bills carefully, often showing heroic first responders for a bill loaded with pork! Read the bill before you vote!

I don't have skin in the Sloaf station but I wold prefer the folks up there have a station. But our Cali politicians seem to care more about illegals vs. citizens and property owners. Remember that next time you vote.

Dispatch going out for possible smoke near Bear Mtn/Summit, it's clouds peaking just over the ridge. Looks like smoke, but is mistaken identity.

Seems like every couple of years someone wants us to pay MORE taxes, schools, now the fire dept. Won't see me voting for this crap. OK, off my soapbox.
