They seem to be running a bit behind in snow accumulations in the mountains this year.

http://www.northstarcalifornia.../snowfall_201213.asp

Many are probably hoping the rest of the season will make up the difference - Cali has been running a bit of a drought.

And besides, it wouldn't be Our DH2014 without piles of snow accumulating on the outdoor kitchen. Smile

We are having a drought here in California, a little rain twice all year. You all have most likely heard about our wild fires this week. My nursing students were a little stressed as the flames were very close to where we were on Thursday. The hills looked like briquets in a barbeque and you would see palm trees popping into flame. took 1700 acres. Don't worry no where near Tahoe.I was just looking at the snow pictures at Tahoe dream home. so pretty.

Well, we're due for up to 14 inches tomorrow.

And...that's still not enough to stay in and watch spammer videos.

I was watching a story on T.V. about Truckee and the brown bears are showing up downtown because of the warmer climates and the lack of snow.

The bears aren't hibernating???

Is that behavior temperature/weather dependent?

CA has a bit of a drought? Five inches two years ago, three inches last year, less than 1" so far this year in SoCal when Jan-Feb are the heaviest rain months. We're in the center of a horrible drought! Lake Mead, which supplies water is 1/3 normal. This is the case also with NoCAl lakes. When your food prices rise, remember the drought in California. We've already been warned about mandatory water rationing. It ain't fun! Send rain!

We just had over a foot of snow, which is fairly unusual for us. And temps in the single digits.

Send you some of the snow and a cooling breeze if I could.

There is plenty of water in lake Tahoe even though water is low down here in the south.

Not really the lake level will drop considerably when there is no runoff this year. It is already dropping because of warm temps and evaporation.
The lake level could drop below the rim this summer.That impacts the local economy.
No snow in the Sierra means no water for a good part of California.
There is no way we can get enough before the dry season.
California is one of the top ranking economies in the world, when we're dry, you're going to feel it no matter where you live.

Hibernating bears need water too. With cold weather they do sleep a lot, but still get out to drink or eat snow.
As the weather prematurely warms, they wake up both hungry and thirsty. Especially sows with nursing cubs. Look out for desperate bears!

Yes we do need some rain here, lots of thirsty people and bears and many of us like to keep our lawns green.

keeping lawns green when facing a drought while living in an arid or desert state...pretty silly.

Keeping fields watered, and the crops growing that fill my local grocery with produce... very essential.

My lawn stays pretty green because i planted Marathon sod, but I only water once a week late fall to when it gets hot in the spring and still looks good.

Rain would be best though as i like to plant tomatoes and peppers.

YES! We finally got some rain and the Sierra got snow! Hopefully we will get more tomorrow and our drought will end.

I enjoyed the rain as well, but we still need some more. It was not a big rain. No more rain forecast for Southern ca. Hopefully some more up in the north where still kitty and the dream home are.

Rain is again predicted for Thursday, but our rains here as mentioned by Still Kitty have been very light.
