There is nothing in the 10 day forecast.  That puts us at 10-16 inches of snow in February.  Did you hear me?  10 measly Fing inches in the whole month of February.

The forecast models are showing that now with increased chances of some bigger storms making it into CA for the end of the month and into the first week of March. The snow needs to hurry up because we are getting close to going below the driest season of 76-77 for snowpack.” – TahoeWeatherDiscussion.com

We are hanging onto a very very thin thread in Tahoe.  Our greatest hope for snow is, once again, about 14 days out…

Will we have a “Miracle March” this year in Tahoe?  I think so.  It wouldn’t take too much for March to the biggest snow month of the year in Tahoe, so why the hell not?
