Here’s a view of our local mountains taken on Wednesday after a week of rain and snow. To get a sense of what a relief this is, compare it to a similar photo from last year, which was the best I got all winter. Instead of just a light dusting of snow on Mt. Baldy, this year we have lots of snow covering all of the San Gabriel mountains. Not only is it lovely, but it means that for this year, at least, reservoirs will be full and everyone will have plenty of water.
