It’s not unusual for the Sierra to see some huge storms in March. After a less than stellar snow season, all eyes were on this month to deliver. Mother Nature (or the jet stream, depending on your beliefs) did not disappoint.
We saw rain and snow all last week, with the big storm arriving Friday. By Saturday morning the resorts were reporting between 30-48 inches in a 24 hour period, with another 2-15 inches by Sunday morning. Storm totals for the week were as high as 7 feet.
This was the storm that many of us had been waiting for, and no doubt there were loud hollers of powder joy at ski resorts throughout the area. N and I are sporting the tired, silly grins of two people who skied a lot of deep snow this weekend.
While spring technically begins in a few days, it feels like winter just arrived. And as far as I’m concerned, it’s welcome to stay awhile.
