September Rolls In

Pattern Discussion

We are in day 16 of last year’s rapidly fading pattern.  The new pattern is establishing itself and beginning to take control.  There are many signs of that change.  Notably, the precipitation of last year’s pattern in August vs this year’s.  

When you look at ’22, you see the pink color in the gulf states from last month’s flooding, from the slow-moving storm that passed through Texas and the Mississippi valley.  That is one storm that lit up that part of the country. 

The rest of the map is similar to last year’s, with more rain in drought-stricken California.  Let’s hope that continues and that California and the Sierra has more precipitation this coming year.

Caldor Fire Anniversary

Just a year ago, last week, that the Caldor fire ripped through Lake Tahoe’s Sierra-at-Tahoe resort.  The resort used their snow-making equipment to protect buildings from the fire. 

Below are a couple of in-depth articles you can read about the reconstruction.
