The month of November in Northern California was looking rather dry until Mother Nature hit in a big way during Thanksgiving week. Now, just a few storms since, the Sierra Nevada mountains are once again looking snowy white.

Ski resorts have been rejoicing over the past two weeks as snow has fallen at an incredible rate from Lassen all the way down to Mammoth. Tahoe ski resorts have already recorded over 100 inches of snow since the Thanksgiving and are looking at more in the coming week.
While it’s too early to predict whether this winter will see huge precipitation numbers like last year, we’re already off to an unbelievable start.
