  1. Its been a very dry winter in the Sierra Nevada Mts. around Mammoth Lakes. We were hoping for a miracle march but it didn’t happen. Now perhaps a miracle april? It better happen soon since only a couple of inches of snow are expected in the southern Sierra Nevada mts out of this coming storm.

  2. It’s not over in Europe either. All the ski resorts are rejoicing in snow for their Easter visitors.

    Hat tip: Swiss guides always used to say ‘the snow which falls before the middle of January is the snow which lasts’.

    Four feet in April will disappear in a week if the sun comes out…….
