That's pretty awesome. At least in your neighborhood it looks like the Piedra (or maybe Vallecito) and Escalante Creek are over 180% of average at the moment!

Thanks for posting that, Dana. I like blue. Hopefully it'll get darker blue as the season goes on...

We are having a great year in SW Utah. Our resort has the best snow in 4-5 years and has potential to be the best in a decade or two. The El Nino pattern is really playing out right now as we speak. That southerly flow is taking control with a vengeance.

Might be a good year for people to keep an eye on some of those small desert rivers.

I have hopes that the Dolores, Escalate, UT and Zion Narrows will run this year...

I just like the way the Oregon Idaho Nevada border is looking.. AKA the Owyhee basin. It's bad when you get to run the middle fork salmon way more than the Owyhee... keeping my fingers crossed that it gives us a predictable run this year..

The Southern half of British Columbia Canada is looking about average right now which is good. Northern BC a little bit less but there are lots of Glaciers up there anyways. This is the first snow survey commentary done by our Provinces River Forecast Centre (first report is done early January when about half of the snowpack has fallen in our Province). If we had no snow fall from now until April we'd still have more snow than last years snowpack for much of southern BC.
