Could very well be. Forecast shows another one coming in beginning Thursday and lasting through the weekend. Looks like it may be more snow than rain.

I thought that to be the case. That's why I added a couple of the things you usually post. Wasn't trying to take your job. :-)

At Tahoe we're getting a lot of wind and heavy rain now. Reno and Sacramento radars are both lit up like a Christmas tree.
