Ask your neighbors if you can borrow some sunblock since it's so warm where you are going and you're worried you don't have enough  >:D

Nope. No. Nah. Don't think so.
You can keep all of that Alyssa. It just looks mad to me. We haven't had that much snow here in ten years - total.

last year we hardly got any snow-

the weather is just soooo very wacky these days. I'm curious to hear actual reports from folks in callie-  the news is making it look horrific out there.

I'm inland in So Calif (Ontario, 90 miles from SD, 60 miles from LA) we got rain but nothing more, but up in Big Bear they got lots of snow, and LA had areas that had weather related damages. I feel very lucky.

I am not an expert, but I think that the rain is too much at once.  I believe we need more sustained slower rains, but I could be wrong.

There's a lot of information here You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

This is their update from 2/13

Another series of storms has brought heavy rain and strong winds to much of California, causing widespread flooding, especially in Northern California, and threatening the structural integrity of the Oroville Dam, the nation’s tallest. Counties and cities near Lake Oroville have issued emergency evacuation orders for 188,000 residents due to eroded primary and emergency spillways which could lead to the uncontrolled releases of water.

Drought conditions have continued to improve, with about 11% of the state experiencing severe to extreme drought, compared to 20% last week. The area no longer experiencing short-term drought effects has increased from 40% to 41.5% over the past week. La Niña conditions have subsided and normal sea surface temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere are expected to continue through spring 2017. Despite these improvements, drought impacts on overdrafted groundwater basins, forests, and aquatic species in California are long term and will take multiple above-average precipitation years to be resolved.


Snowpack is good. Reservoirs are catching up but a lot of them are still well under their average levels.

the ground aquifer? they're not talking about reservoirs right?
this goes to what You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login was saying, a long & slow rain that can soak in

how are the actual reservoirs doing in terms of full-ness?
