Flood watch and nothing but a $hit ton of rain around here.
Kwood will officially have a very solid base after this but what falls ain't gonna be blower. The lower resorts are literally going to get hosed.

Good timing for me since next week is finals.

Check out the forecast for Shasta.


Tonight Snow after 4am.
Total nighttime snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible.

Wednesday Snow.
New snow accumulation of 16 to 22 inches possible.

Wednesday Night Snow.
New snow accumulation of 6 to 10 inches possible.

Thursday Snow.
New snow accumulation of 29 to 35 inches possible.

Thursday Night Snow.
New snow accumulation of 37 to 43 inches possible.

Friday Snow.
New snow accumulation of 23 to 29 inches possible.

Friday Night Snow.
New snow accumulation of 3 to 7 inches possible.

Saturday Snow.
Saturday Night Snow.
Sunday Snow.
Sunday Night Snow showers likely.//

I can't even add up all that snow.
I've got some time off after December 7th, am thinking of a Lassen/Shasta skiesta. Anyone else want to come?

it's not ullr, it's someone who hates those of us in and around tahoe. it's mostly going to be rain unless you're at 11839758394q7 feet. maybe what drops sun/mon will make us happy. or a new base, since everything else is washing away? *grump*grump*

oh sh*t! neebs you just reminded me i should make arrangements to go stay at a friend's for a couple days if neccessary. i live way way out in the country, and the only way in or out is over a little creek that my landlord warned me floods when it's raining hard and you can't get in or out. it washed away someone's truck a few years ago. it flows that hard during big weather events.

tahoe weather guy thinks we're mostly going to see warmer storms this winter... aka more storms like the ones over the next couple days aka only snow at higher elevations...

hey there say, moosedrool... get well soon!...

and say, t*r... keep safe... if any doubts, move on out for a bit...
flash floods, or ?wate-gushes? can affect roads when folks least expect it, too...

my brother is up higher, but occasionaly he will travel those areas, too...
good thing when we can plan ahead...

I'm praying the goods get brought to kwood. As someone said earlier, they should have a solidddd base after this blasting.

it's called rain and snow

happens from time to time

part of life

and death

rainier gets 105 feet of snow daily,

but it gets melted by pyroclastic mud flows as soon as it hits,

this gets converted to rainier ale, on sale at your local safeway,

why not pick up a 12 pack today, along with a pack of altoids for the cops,

That Rainier Ale is some good sh#t...Give me some stelazine and chase it with a quart bottle of Green Death and watch the cops pour you into the 15 or less aisle...
