Was wondering what effect the winter storms of Jan and Feb are having on your area. Have seen a bit of the usual dramatic footage on the evening news for areas to your west, but nothing about your area.
Thank you for being a CERT, NERT, or NET, giving your time, effort, knowledge, and money to prepare to help others before, during, and after a disaster.
Fortunately for Truckee, the precip that came in was both snow and rain, so flooding wasn't really an issue for us. Our snow depths in the areas of upper elevation homes is very deep. In Tahoe Donner and on Donner Summit the snow is up to the phone lines on the telephone poles. I live east of Truckee a few miles (by rational choice) and my snow is about 3 feet deep. I like it that way. There is a lot of snow up here, even by Truckee standards- but not enough to call it any sort of emergency.
