Arizona boating season is already underway! Looking forward to the AZ daily triple crown- skiing, boating, biking in the same day. Substituting any other favorite sports accepted Thank you El Niņo!

I thought the third leg of the triple crow usually involved the Mrs.

Real adventure is only one bad decision away.

Another map of snowpack

Here's a different map of Western States snowpack, one that averages snowpack levels from different SnoTel sites in the same drainage. The colored dot maps are great if you want to look up the chart for each specific SnoTel site to see the actual SWE number, but I find this map gives me a better look at the overall picture.

Precip Forecasts through May, Structural Deficit

John Fleck posted model results as of 1/17/15 or so on his blog and says:

The latest forecast runs from the National Centers for Environmental Prediction, the folks who run the seasonal models, still look encouraging. But we’ll have to be patient. February doesn’t look encouraging, but the models start to turn by March. Scroll down for the maps through May. The colors mean wetter or drier than average, not absolute amount.
Check out the maps of relative precip on his blog here, or you can follow his links to the source.

For folks looking for big picture Colorado Basin water issues, he's got another post on Lake Mead as the drama of the Basin's "Structural Deficit" continues.

Odds now favor a Lower Colorado River Basin shortage declaration in 2018

Here's his main blog page for info on all kinds of Western water issues.



Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse
