So how much did Shasta get?

I flew to L.A. a couple days ago, and the Sierras were covered with snow.

Not sure yet. The problem is that there isn't a SNOTEL or other weather station up there, so perhaps we may never know for sure. But I suspect one of the guides or rangers will head up in the next day or two out of curiosity. There was certainly more than a foot of rain in town which should put snow totals up high well into the triple digits.

For the western 1/3 of the state:


... Winter weather set to make an appearance this weekend...

A long awaited change to the large-scale weather pattern appears in
store this weekend that will bring colder temperatures to eastern
Utah and western Colorado... and a shot of snow to many locations as
well.

A cold storm system will drop out of the Gulf of Alaska on Friday
and swing across the northern rockies into the Dakotas on Saturday.
A trailing cold front will reach northeast Utah and northwest
Colorado Saturday... bringing measurable snowfall to the northern
mountains. Strong gusty westerly winds will also create areas of
blowing snow.

Accumulating snowfall will also spread across the central and
southern mountains Saturday night as a second disturbance drive
the cold front through our area. Many central and northern valleys
stand a good chance of seeing some snow fall as well... as snow
levels quickly drop to valley floors behind the front. The cold
northwesterly flow will keep some snow showers over the western
Colorado mountains on Sunday.

After the unseasonably mild temperatures of late... the weekend
storm will bring a sharp change to colder temperatures. High
temperatures on Sunday could be as much as 15 to 20 degrees colder
than on Friday. Low temperatures Sunday night are likely to be in
the teens and single digits across the entire area.

Snowfall this weekend is expected to favor the northern and central
mountains... especially on the northwest and north facing slopes.
Northerly flow Saturday night into Sunday... however... may also bring
increased snowfall as far south as the northwest San Juan Mountains.

Forecast confidence is beginning to increase in the bigger
picture... yet uncertainty continues with many important details such
as the storm/S eventual strength and track. Please monitor the
latest statements and forecasts through local media... the Grand
Junction National Weather Service web site at
www.Weather.Gov... and our facebook Page.

Looks like less than a foot for most of the mountains with high winds. I am not complaining but we need about 10 more of these events.

Mt. Baker, WA already has a 123 inch base at its upper mountain :shock:

Looks like a colder/snowy pattern is finally setting up here in Colorado. Hopefully things are going to turn around for us soon.

I've got an App on my phone that gives updates on resorts getting over 5 inches of snow. It has been consistently going off every morning... but for Jackson Hole and Sun Valley, no Colorado... :(

Hopefully will look a little better after today. This is from this morning (12/7) on the way to Sawtooth Mountain. (One valley south from your photo.) We'll see, I guess. Never let up the entire time I was out.

There's about a foot at Brainard Lake right now, nice and fluffy. Bring your skis!
Such things for example as the grasp of a child's hand in your own, the flavor of an apple, the embrace of a friend or lover...sunlight on rock and leaves, the feel of music, the bark of a tree, the abrasion of granite and sand, the plunge of clear water into a pool, the face of the wind--- what else is there? What else do we need?
