Well it didn't snow...

The recent system that literally blew through here dropped a ton of rain in various locales (not in our neighborhood, thank goodness) and brought wind gusts up to 55mph. It was a tropical system, sometimes called the Pineapple Express, so the snow level remained at around the 5500 ft. elevation. Last evening I-5 was shut down for about four hours because of flooding at the north end of Lake Shasta. No, the lake didn't overflow, but there was so much runoff that the drains on the roadway couldn't handle it. The irony is that the lake is about 125 feet below maximum and the flooding occurred less than a mile from the lake.
Our next weather visitor is due in from the Gulf of Alaska so the snow level may drop significantly.
