We've had 41" this year, which is above normal, another 6-8 coming tomorrow night. Took this on the way to work pulling out of my garage.

We've had 3 days in the high 40's that have melted a lot. I can't imagine living someplace that gets 7' or 8' in a week and then follows it up with the same the week after.

I wonder if it will be the end of June before the passes are open? I definitely see Sonora pass on one of my routes this summer.

It was nuts. Can’t tell where the road is. Cars spun out all over. I couldn’t believe the road was open.
