I have no idea, as I have only been following the local weather.

Thanks, schmarmy! I had a good time up Pine Creek Falls the other day, too, but the ice just wasn't challenging. A lovely scramble, actually. :)

I'm in full-on mocking mode to the weather gods: threatening to go climb something tomorrow, get the TOF washed today... :roll:

My skis are becoming bitter.

They wouldn't be bitter if they were being skied anywhere with decent snow!

Actually, the pow skis are too new to be bitter. They don't know about the fun yet! :D

Oh bummer, no I thought the road back to Saddlebag was before the gate where they close 120. Other plans now.

Today was pretty nice, cloudy but still a fair amount of sun and no precipitation, though it is supposed to dump a bunch of snow tomorrow. I was able to snowshoe out to Wagon Creek from my backyard this morning:

I am still working on the route, so this is speculation, but I am pretty confident that I can reach the summit of Eddy by following Wagon Creek and the southeast shoulder of the mountain. Not bad to nail an ultra-prominence peak from your backyard.

They had Flash Flooding throughout the "Drought" stricken areas of Norcal.

Where did all that water, over 6-10" of QPF in less than 72 hours, go?

Straight to the ocean.






Why?


Enviro's not allowing through imposed moratoriums for the construction of ANY new reservoirs. The same Enviro's that are screaming CC.


Stupidity and Hypocrisy at it's best.






Over and Out.
