My faith has wavered.

From the Fire Imagery site -

Just goes to show that the computer models can underestimate the amount/depth
of snow. Nothing like a good visual.
Hmmm...
Might have to alter my plans.

Jib,
Not sure you if you've seen this one as well; you may find it interesting for planning, history, etc.:

I was wondering why that first map showed so much snow, all the recent storms here have been way too warm. This one currently has snow levels around 6-7k, which is probably melting off what was there from the last storm.
Coming up next week I'll be going in the trinity alps or over to Shasta. I'll post up current conditions.
