Thanks for clarifying. Both gauges - Sesame Street and McCoy - registered ~0.55. In between your estimate and patrol's record. No idea how much was snow and at what ratio.

And now .17" with 12 hours to go. This is amazing, its like those cliche desert water mirages that vanish as you get closer.

Just a drought year, about what we can expect, not much!

Alright let's see how the qpf performs this week. Based solely on the season so far I'm going to guess that actual precipitation is around half of what's forecast.

Mammoth hasn't gotten a whole lotta snow so far this season but at least the volcano isn't erupting!

That's something anyway...

Apparently the pattern for this season is take the qpf five days out and divide it in half. 8" is a nice refresh but low compared to the qpf just a few days ago.

And then take the next two weeks off to dry out and warm up.

I think that's definitely going to apply right now. Looks warm and sunny for us and back to the deep freeze for the other half of the country.
