    There's a chance we could get a flake or 2 in El Dorado Hills at about 1000 elevation.

    got about 3" at 1950 ft. Got pretty drippy when the sun came out . Rock hard when it went down.

    Initially they said 6 -8 inches where I'm at then as usual it was weak when the snow hit.

    The rain and wind were pretty intense for hours Monday night Tuesday morning.

    Pretty much all Sierra Nevada measurment stations are over Average for the date. Some stations are at 180% https://www.wcc.nrcs.usda.gov/ftpref.../update/ca.txt

    Klamath area not so much

    Expecting 4 to 12 more inches of snow Friday and Saturday, This may be the first WPMA gold show I may have to miss since it started 24 year ago, interesting point the show was always the last weekend of February, better weather then usually.

    We have another round coming.

    now down to 1k feet Saturday night into Sunday evening.

    Right now I'm forcast to get 3" to 6" of snow. Last Storm I got 3" and that was after a solid twenty hours of constant rain.

    lots of rain snow then rain again.

    perfect combo to move some dirt down gullies and hillsides.

    YAY

    We do not have any snow in Maine. Rain and 40 degrees today. We got one storm all winter...17 inches, big deal. It is supposed to hit 0 degrees tonight with high winds though...

    I got a 20 KW generator for backup power, so it means nothing to me if a tree hits a line, but wood pellets are hard to come by now. I am mixing corn in to make what I have stretch...

    Went to Auburn on Saturday it was rainy and cold, on the way back up north on the 101 it started snowing around Laytonville, by the time we got up to Arcata we were slipping and sliding they shut the 101 down shortly after we went through, blew my head I'm not used to skidding around like that at sea level .

    Please be careful and think about your speed and what you have going on where the rubber meets the road. We had a terrible accident on 101 that took 2 innocent lives in a lost control incident in snowy conditions here at sea level. Don't want to say any more, but it was very tragic. We seem to have a real winter going on lately. God bless.
