“The Sierra Nevada is wrapping up a historic winter and that’s huge news for Nevada and California, states that have spent the past several years parched in drought.
“Who would have thought this two years ago when we were measuring the worst snowpack on record,” Anderson said.
The snowpack is 212 inches deep at the Slide Mountain SNOTEL site. Water content at the site was 74.6 inches, meaning there’s more than six feet of water in the 17-foot snowpack. It’s a record for March 1 at the site.”
Two years ago climate experts were saying that California was doomed to dry up and become a dust bowl.
