That's good to see this early. We got some in the upper mountains at Lake Tahoe but not as much as Tioga.

Our winter storm progressions in CA in most recent years seem to be bimodal, that is, we have two peaks - one in the fall, and another coming in around late February-March. Their strength and durations vary quite a bit. Sometimes, the storms come every day for a month or more, like 2004-2005 and 2005-2006, and sometimes they just sputter few times and end, like in 2006-2007. It doesn't seem to matter how early or late the season actually begins. Thus, if this pattern holds, an early snowfall may *not* be indicative of a strong winter.

However, this is only guesswork based on general observations over the last half-decade. I have not seen any statistical models of this recent trend, and it could end anytime. I hope, whatever the patern may be this year, that we get a darn good dose of snow!

For weather info up here I utilize the "What's-It" method. I look out the window and see what's it doing outside. Not very technological but it's really "up to the moment" accurate...and it never needs new batteries.
