Storm Update: Add Another ‘Wow’

I figured the storms were about finished yesterday, with widely scattered showers here at home that seemed to be petering out as the day went by. Then last night I was awoken by the sound of heavy rain that didn't seem to quit untill morning.

In case you're wondering what happened in the local mountains, Mountain High reports 12-20" of snow overnight, and Mount Baldy reports 18" of new snow on top of yesterday's 6-12" wet dump. Again, lots of warnings about weather, road restrictions, lift delays, closures, etc. And please — stay out of the backcountry today!

But still...Wow.
