Incredible Mammoth Mountain snows

Looking to the west, there are some incredible storm totals at Mammoth Mountain, which is reporting a storm total since Friday of 8.5 to 12.5 feet.  Yes, they measure the snow at Mammoth in feet.  Here's the snow-depth record over the past five days from their Sesame Snow Study Plot at about 9000 feet.

From 44 to 115 inches in 3 days.  Not too shabby!   According to their snow report, with 134" so far this month, they are 5 inches short of their snowiest December since records were first kept in 1969.  And, the computer models suggest the pounding will continue through Wednesday.
