Webcams at Monarch show a couple feet remaining on the deck, slopes still covered right down to the lot, and it is currently snowing. Recent lower temps will also improve the timing and duration of the runoff. After a downright HOT Jan, Feb, and March in Salida, I'm feeling fortunate that the snow gods (and of course the water brokers) are cooperating to provide what appears to be a solid summer on the upper Ark. Hope Cali and the PNW are getting some relief too.
It has been a very unusual year in that there have been rafts in Brown's Canyon every month since last April, and I don't think it ever froze up in the inner stretch this past winter, it certainly didn't below Hecla. Seasonal cycles have become even more unpredictable, who knows what we can expect in the years to come...
