I'm already counting down to next year.

I'm hoping we have winter storms like we did last year, sure would be nice to stay out of a drought for more than a year or 2. LOL

Just got my plane tickets for next year, but I won't start looking at snow reports until August. (I do, however, peek at the Northstar webcams on occasion; there's still lots of snow up there.)

Nice. Yeah there's still a lot of snow on the Sierra Nevada's. Its going to be a good water year. Although they are forecasting that the fire season is going to be bad. That part I'm not looking forward to.

They just got more snow at Lake Tahoe this week, even though most of the ski resorts are closed. I hope there's some snow left for next year.

Keep your fingers crossed. Our water levels for this year are great thanks to all that snow!

Skiing in July! The conditions weren't great, but it was fun anyway.

[Edit]: Oh, and happy Fourth of July.

Saturday used to mean a day of weekend fun, but lately there are more and more household projects to finish. But the skiing in July was fun, so I can't complain.

Skiing in mid July is a bit like having Christmas dinner on the dunes while being roasted by the sun - its so much better than sitting is a cold damp room watching the rain come down which the norm in the UK for both times of year...

I/m getting dizzy watching the markets go up and down. Time to turn off the TV and get to those home improvement projects that I've put off for too long.

We have had (happily) a good amount of rain in the last few months, mostly at night (also happily). The last few years have been drier than normal with some areas suffering drought. They say it takes 25 years for rain falling today to filter through to the ground water, but with this rain people can turn off sprinklers and farmers will use less water, so the rain is welcome.

Well thats good. We've had our fair share of droughts, but this last winter really did a good thing to our water. I'm hoping for another good wet winter this year, keep our water supplies up.
