March 10, 2016 SNOTEL Report

This is the official SNOTEL report from USDA and NRCS. Big Jim and I discuss what this means, if anything, and what we would rather have; 18,000cfs in July or 2,900. In the last five or six years we've had both and both create specific challenges that once figured out, can turn tough--pull your hair out--days into a day of the ages.

As with every year about this time, what really matters is what's to come. We are still holding on tight to the snow up in the higher elevations but 70's in April with no precipitation and you can kiss the snowpack goodbye. Conversely, we could have snow in late June and everything blow out. I'm glad I'm not the one making the decisions on whether to hold back water in the reservoirs.

Keep 'em where they live...
