YUP!

Got 6" down here (7,100') since 9am. The Hill has received 12ish". Forecast calling for up to 5' over the Crest by Sunday morning.

GFS is showing a consistent Negative Pattern through the end of the month with numerous cold wet impulses and Closed Lows streaming out of the Gulf of Alaska though the first week of March.

The ice gods just informed me it will only scrape houses off the map as far as the Sherwin Grade, Bishop will be spared. But be prepared for mass flooding and possible rainbow trout sightings in the kitchen (oops that part was supposed to be posted on the food thread!).
