Remember When It Snowed?

We spent some time rock climbing at Donner pass last Saturday.

There was almost NO SNOW!

We had a great time in spite of the lack of snow. Who remembers what that was? You know, SNOW!

Enjoy this historical video documenting the concept of snow.

My season pass for KW is not seeming like a wise choice this winter. After getting similarly burned in 2012/2013 I declined last winter which turned out to be. But this fall with the El Nino forecasts at the time seeming to indicate a possible change, gambled. Wawwwwwww. :crybaby:

Yeah, looking bad. My yard is almost completely bare. 'Normal' (whatever that is) would be 12-18" in my yard this time of year.

Raising dust on dirt roads in January???? This is not good.
