    given the current depth of snow pack avalanche and therefore mudslides are a real possibility. How bad this could get is unknown

    We drove over the Sierra Nevada mountains near Lake Tahoe last week. Absolutely beautiful, but some areas still had snow on the ground. I would never drive up there in snow, and after several decades living in the upper Midwest, I know how to drive in snow.

    It's funny to watch big cities shut down because of a dusting of 10 inches of snow. Especially down south. What is the deal?

    CA is a desert and only needs a couple of inches of water for flash floods and massive mud slides. once the snow starts to slip there will be more than two inches of water.

    Not all of California is a desert. Only the Mohave area.
