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

Good Luck to all!

A.R.....even though Grout Creek and a few other lake feeders are still flowing, volume is such that we`re looking at a few more inches max...
The good news is that you don`t have to extend the gangway/dock out nearly as far to get to proper depth this year!

Hey Lake People. As it is so nice to see blue at the east end once again, what are the chances we will get another couple of feet in the next month or so. Would so love to put new owners dock out for the first time in 6 years???????

NSA, from another former scouter, Kudos on so many years of service and you are still going strong. Just goes to show that it just a couple of morons followed by and idiot or two to really fowl it up for the good ones and for the kids. An experience I would never want to forgo.

Was a scout leader for my two boys (both earned eagle rank) and the rest of the troop of about 70 boys. Was the cooking merit badge counselor, led 12 summer camps (one to Crater Lake, OR another to Philmont Scout Ranch NM), had a group of 11 Tiger Cubs (1st graders) of which 7 earned eagle. Also won 7 adult Golden Spoon camp cooking awards! Our troop (Fullerton 1201) was formed 1919.

The Boy Scout hullabaloo is a lawyer trying to make a name for themselves. So the BOA had a list of suspected child predators? So does AYSO and any other organization that puts adults in contact with children (except maybe the Catholic Church). They didn't let them have anything to do with kids. Should they have published the names without a trial? NO.

I was a scout too, looking at my eagle scout plaque now. Learned so much about the outdoors and all the stuff i love to do, some of it was not easy and really character building, but always fun. I was friends with my scoutmaster and his family for over forty years til he passed away up here a couple of years back...

Heli logging above the village all day, landing the logs at the old snow forest parking lot...

So sad, a great American institution.
