That's probably just the drought talking.
Recently I was talking with a buddy who works in the water storage business, and he told me that the snow in the mountains is both deep and wet, with a high water content. He said if we get another warm Pineapple Express, that rains heavily and melts the snow at the same time, there will be serious problems. Let's hope it all melts off evenly this spring, and fills every reservoir in the state to the brim with sparkling, clean, ice cold water.
At Kirkwood Ski Resort near me, the base is almost 12 feet deep, and for the season, they've had a total fall of nearly 32.5 feet of sweet snow.
