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.

2018/19 SCM SNOW POOL UPDATE:
Canvas Man is currently the leader in the SCM Snow Pool with 82 inches (so far 82 inches have fallen this season). Remember the snow pool goes through May 15th so even an inch of snow would topple his lead.

Here are the folks next in line after Canvasman for taking the win:
82 Canvas Man
83 BaughHumbug
84 Desert Steve
85 SSJ2012
86 Between Stars
87 kof218
88 Wave Slider
89 HBadger

Good Luck to all!

Not a whole lot, yet. There are reports of a couple spun out vehicles through Arctic Circle, but looking at the Snow Valley cam, not much has accumulated on the roads. With the temp still above freezing roads should be ok, just wet for now. As temperatures drop below freezing later tonight, expect some ice/snow develop on the roadways so travel safely if you must!

There's is another decent band of snow moving in over the next hour or two.... [Click Here]

Another wave of moisture will move through the area over the next several hours with more rain and snow showers likely. The snow level could dip to around 6,000 feet with a couple inches possible. Travel safely and carry chains just in case!

No, you're right Fawn, hopefully next year if they have more eaglets they'll do the same thing but let them public vote on them. They can vote on them with a $1 donation each or something..... Would be a great fundraiser for Friends of the Big Bear Valley!
