    Not good news for those of us who live there. I hope you've done your prepping for this kind of event.

    We had frost this morning and it never got above 40F. You kept all the heat on your side of the mountain. :p

    I'll send some your way. It sounds like another storm is due later in the week. I sure hope it brings more snow.

    We are at 4500 ft. and just below the snow line. All the Sierra hills to the west are covered but not so much on our east side. I'd like to see more snow too, we can use the water for the aquifers in Nevada.
    Weather report says more rain (little snow) in about 5-6 days, but that prediction as often been wrong when it goes beyond about a week.
    Of course, the other side of the coin is when that snow melts. I've been through two floods, here, in the last couple of decades. We're safe up here on the hillside from everything less that a 500-1000 year flood, but most of lower Reno floods easily. But we have plans.

    Our winters can be like that as well. We often get most of our moisture between February and May.
