    New snow down to 5800' around Truckee River. Socked in, 37°F, little wind.

    This crazy year continues. At least we don't have tornados.

    This weather at end of May is almost unheard of. Remember November/December 2017 when all the media were saying that drought and heat were now the “new normal” for CA?
    Heading up to big bear today/tomorrow, 3-6” of snow expected.

    Shhh, my condo in Irvine got hit by one ~1990-1. Picked up a Yugo and made it do a 180 on to the sidewalk. Remember Yugos?

    Those are the cars with the built-in hand warmers in the rear window so you can push it off the road, right? :coffee:

    I heard they are seeding the clouds to combat global warming. Let me adjust my aluminum foil antennas so I can get more details.

    Watched a movie last night called "Snowpiercer", where a artificial cooling substance called CW7 was dispersed into the atmosphere in attempt to mitigate global warming. It caused the next ice age. Not a spoiler, that's not really what the show is about, just the lead in.

    Wife andI hiked up the east end of Skyline a bit yesterday afternoon. Half a mile up, at about 7400' , 4-5" of snow . Temp hovernig around freezing, cloudy and sleeting occasionally. Towards sunset when it strted to clear up we were on the north side of the lake and we could see the upper half of snow summit with quite a bit of white. , the previous day and night it was snowing at lake level, and even down in running springs, but wasnt really sticking long below 7,000'. Sugarloaf and Gorgonio Ridge had lots of the white stuff. so bizarre (and enjoyable) to see this so close to summer. also nice to see the lake water levels so much higher than the last 5 years. Somewhat chilly forcast still for Mem Day. also went to the big bear zoo and had it pretty much to ourselves, the animals were actually quite active in teh cold weather. The wolves were howling!
