Snowpack encouraging, for now.

The snowpack that ultimately supplies Lake Mead is great this week, with more than double the average for this time in Colorado.  Lake Mead is currently at 28% capacity.

Heavy snow and even “thunder snow” was forecasted for Halloween weekend, with warnings for dangerous driving conditions for those traveling the Colorado Rockies.

But the good news may be short-lived, especially if another La Niña weather pattern occurs this winter, as predicted.

I knew lake mead was low, very low even, but I had no idea her capacity was only 28%. That is terrible. My feeling is we will have a hearty winter and it will start early and run late. I suspect we may have a dry spell in Dec or January but the snow will fly!
