When CO2 was much lower, the 1960 Squaw Valley Olympics almost had to be cancelled because of a lack of snow.
Traded msgs w/a friend yesterday whose Tahoe cabin is still largely buried. He stated something to the effect of, ‘You know, a cool/cloudy summer and another winter like this, and icefields start to grow…quickly’. Would be an interesting turn (and no doubt proof to the MSM that thing are ‘worse than we thought’). No one knows what direction things will trend; there is no ‘normal’ here (and never has been). It’s bone-dry or biblical flooding, and all scenarios in between…all of which are within the range of reasonable probabilities.
Great Stuff !!

OT , but this is good news.
Really interesting curve comparison.
A South Lake Tahoe friend just sent a photo of where she felt inclined to turn around and go home. She was headed toward Carson City, going east and up on Kingsbury Grade toward Daggett Pass, and, after turning around she encountered an ambulance, fire truck and two sheriff’s cars headed in the direction she thought it best not to go. Gold star to her!
I suspect the place to be watching this spring in California is a ways north, up at Oroville.
If they didn’t pump megatons of concrete slurry to seal and stabilize the punky fragmented basalt under that thing at it’s base it’s going to fail again when it is most needed.
As I write this I am hoping I am seeing the last snow this year in my piece of Indiana. Rain turning to snow.
