This year’s punishing winter in California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains resulted in more snow than can be measured
The traditional snow-measuring device is a 16′ tube which is forced into the snow pack to determine its depth. This year, 16′ is not even close to measuring the snow pack.
We are at historic levels not seen in thirty years. All this snow has made for difficult transportation this winter, but if you are looking for the silver lining, at least California’s drought is over.
