I thought La Niña years were supposed to bring us excess snowpack. Two disastrous La Niña years in a row.
Even if it doesn't add much of anything significant to the current snowpack, at least it's helpful to put the brakes on melting more off for a few days. Plus this is the time of year when the Corps switches from keeping the reservoirs low to handle winter flooding to trying to fill them back up for summer (while still maintaining enough targeted outflow to help flush smolts down), so it's helpful to add to that before it's too late and the levels don't get all the way back to full pool.Willamette Pass is a mess this morning. Every little bit counts. Looks like 6-8" of new snow.
Never mind that SNOTEL data are federal and largely automated … unsubstantiated claims of conspiracy on ifish are most certainly expected.Oregon has found a way to corrupt the data to make it look bad so they can get extra federal money for firefighting season. That would be expected.
