Glad to see you’re still at the keyboard and pluggin’ away.

Generally, the moisture content of 10 inches of snow equals I inch of rain, though it can vary. For example, the “wet” snow that falls at lower altitudes here is often referred to as “Sierra cement.” That’s the kind of snow, with its high water content, that causes the buildings at shopping centers to cave in due to the flat roofs and inadequate support beams. Colorado ski resorts are known for their dry powder that people have occasionally drowned in when it has gotten very deep. I can’t help but think you must be getting snow at the higher altitudes there. I remember traveling over Loveland Pass in a Trailways Bus in 1968 (before the freeway was built) and there was nearly a foot of snow in September! So, we’re sunny and dry here in Cali. Send some of that moisture further west! We’ll be glad to take it off your hands.

Actually, we aren’t getting snow. That’s one of the weird things about this storm, at least according to the experts. It was “tropical,” in that it was so warm. In retrospect, I remember the windows in my car steaming up last Wednesday when the storm was really ramping up, and that is something that just doesn’t happen here. When it rains it usually gets very cool. Not this time.

Kind of snuck in the backdoor, I guess. Well, hang in there!
