California Drought

Not sure who is on the West Coast on here...
But we are getting some Major water this year.
Lakes are filling and Snow is still falling, I hope this is a Good sign.
Too much rain can be really bad for older Communities in slide areas.

One of our local lakes Lake Elsinore was closed for low and bad water last summer, already up 4' this year...

Hopefully good for Boating

Larry, has the temperature been cooler for you this winter? Up the west coast in Washington / BC we have had the coolest November / December in some time. Snow on the ground for most of December which is very unusual. We just had some warm rains last week that has melted everything. So much for global warming (at least this year).

Its back and forth on the Temps, the Rain comes from Alaska and Tropics depending on the Front system .

Snow levels are up and down, causing melt.

Our lake of choice is Lake Berryessa. It might actually fill up this year. Very excited for the summer, but enjoying the snow currently. Berryessa doesn't get any snow melt, it only fills directly from rain runoff. Half the lake is currently brown with runoff due to the major storm systems moving through the region. It's only about 15 feet from full, so it's looking more and more likely that it will spill.

This is great news for CA boating! The lakes are really going to fill come spring.

Reminds me of TX a few years back.

Did the drought wreak havoc on Berryessa? Expose stumps, or leave docks stranded?

Naci has gone up like 40' since the end of December. It's going to be a great year. I cannot wait and hope it keeps going for a few more months.

I saw Cali Skier post a video of Canyon spilling over into Elsinore. I hope Elsinore gets full and even floods. That place needs a good douching.

It drives me nuts though to see all the water that comes down the San Gabriel and Santa Ana Rivers (aka flood channels) and goes... wait for it.... RIGHT INTO THE OCEAN!!

Just a Little better...

Let's just say shore camping this last year and having to bring camping stuff up 60+ft was a ton of fun

Really glad to see the much needed moisture in Cali, but IIRC won't it require 10+ years of above normal rainfall/snowpack to refill Lake Mead?

My lake of choice is Sonoma. As of Jan 19, it's at 120%!!! Should be an excellent year for boating and camping! The other lake we go to, New Melones, is only at 35%, so we probably won't be there this year.
I know it's a hassle for some, but I'm hoping the rain keeps up- after years of drought, the aquifers need time to recharge, and it'd be great to see all the lakes moving towards full.
