Mammoth mega-storm expected to drop up to 20 feet; ‘God help us’
It’s snowing in the Sierra. It started snowing Jan. 4, and you can already see what Mother Nature has wrought.
Another blizzard swept Mammoth Mountain on Wednesday, the precursor to a string of storms expected to bring up to 20 feet of fresh snow in the next 10 days, the resort says.
Since Tuesday, 26 to 48 inches of fresh snow had fallen, with the deepest totals at the summit. Plows were working furiously to keep lots and streets clear.
Normal resort operations could be affected as personnel struggle to deal with the snow.
The cause of the snow? One of those “atmospheric rivers” that forecasters refer to in particularly generous storms like this. In the next week and a half, the Sierra resort is expecting three of those wet cycles.

Life-threatening flooding problems to mount as storm train aims for California

Excessive rain to trigger flooding, mudslides
Cumulative rainfall into midweek could surpass a foot across the northern California coast ranges and west-facing slopes of the Sierra Nevada. Two to 8 inches of rain are expected across the Sacramento and San Joaquin valleys.
“THE SIEGE OF STORMS HAS THE POTENTIAL TO WIPE OUT OR GREATLY ERASE THE LONG-TERM DROUGHT CONDITIONS IN THE REGION,” ACCUWEATHER SENIOR METEOROLOGIST ALEX SOSNOWSKI SAID.
The rain will have a hard time absorbing into the soil with each passing storm. AS A RESULT, INCIDENTS OF URBAN FLOODING, RIVER FLOODING, MUDSLIDES AND ROCK SLIDES WILL ONLY INCREASE INTO MIDWEEK.
Significant flooding, mudslides and rock slides were reported shortly after the first wave of rain moved ashore on Sunday.

She’s Just saying… DROUGHT IS A SHAME
An unprecedented drought last year and 15 YEARS OF DROUGHT ACROSS THE AMERICAN WEST have demonstrated the need to rethink U.S. water management for the 21st Century. Since 1980, droughts have cost the United States more than $200 billion. The drought last year caused widespread and serious impacts for communities, agriculture, industry and the environment. As drought is predicted to continue in the coming years and as communities throughout the United States face significant water-security challenges, it is a crucial time to evaluate and develop new strategies at the national level.
Just saying…Senator Cantwell does not mention the removal of Dams or Flooding, period

The United States Drought Monitor map is showing that 78% of the state(CALIFORNIA) is currently experiencing an “exceptional drought” stage. This represents a 22% increase from just a year ago.
Droughts can prove devastating to a community as widespread crop and pasture losses and shortages of water in reservoirs, streams and wells accompany drought conditions.
Amazingly, Lynne Wilson serves on THE CLIMATE CHANGE DELEGATION IN THE UNITED NATIONS. This fact makes Wilson’s statement that
