Lakes almost full

It's been awhile since I've been around.
I thought I'd let you all in Southern Ca, who've given up on Lake Isabella and the Kern River the lake I almost full and there is still a lot of snow to melt.

Hope to see you all this summer.
John

There's still a lot of snow to melt so the lake is sure to be FULL this year.

Lakes almost full

Because we are only occasional visitors, the browning of California was all the more noticeable. I recall returning to Arizona back in May and thinking after we crossed the Colorado River, "Wow, the desert here is so green!"

We have been blessed with rain and snow across the West this winter. The snowpack in Colorado bodes well for the recovery of Lakes Mead and Powell. Should be some good river rafting this year, too. Glad to hear SoCal and the Central Valley are also getting their share!

I hear that sometimes the result of increased winter precipitation is spectacular desert bloom in spring. If it does happen, please take and post some pictures, you desert dwellers.

In New England we say "If you don't like the weather, wait a few minutes." In some other places it might be "...wait a few years." Even so, without change life would be pretty boring.

Ditto here in San Diego county; just kayaked yesterday at Lake Miramar and it looked replenished. Unusually warm day, so got out there for the first paddle of the year.

Grateful for the rain!!

: did they get lots of snow as Lake Shasta was getting pretty low the last several years, was by that way a few years ago and it was almost dry.

Lake Shasta looked quite full last year when we drove by. I think N Cal got lots of rain/snow this rainy season, so they'll probably be letting water out of Shasta.
