As Appearing in the California Globe
The snow depth in Blue Canyon, California, went from zero to 62 inches in just 3 days
AccuWeather reported that after an absence of major storms for much of the winter, the Sierra Nevada mountain range region in California finally received some heavy snow, and looks to receive more next week.
Calling it the ‘March Miracle,’ AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said parts of the central and northern Sierra Nevada were buried under somewhere between 3-5 feet of snow since it started falling on Sunday.
“As of 9 a.m. PDT Monday, Kingvale, California reported 52 inches of snow from the storm thus far.”
“The snow depth in Blue Canyon, California, went from zero to 62 inches in just 3 days, meaning that more than 5 feet of snow fell there.”
This is good news because the California Legislature and former Gov. Jerry Brown passed a law to impose water rationing on the state’s residents of 55 gallons per person, per day by 2020, now bumped to 2022.
