Now is a good time to reflect on where we are in the big picture. One illustration is our own Alta Sierra. It remains closed for the third weekend due to infrastructure problems with roadways, mudslides and frankly, too much snow.

They currently have a 325-inch base. That is 27 feet! Bakersfield is now sitting at 9.29 inches for the rainy season (14th wettest year on record). Bakersfield has had 2.53 inches of rain this month (sixth wettest March on record). Records go back to 1889. Today was the 47th rain day for the season and the 10th rain day this month.
