    Yes, but long term trends would suggest a change in short term events, right??

    Visit Australia: drought and bushfires one day, floods the next. (Sounds like an accurate, if not very good tourism ad.)

    That's been California for years, on this side of the world.

    Most don't want to or refuse to pay for infrastructure as is. Add the population density and humidity. Add them up and you know why.

    We only got around 5 inches of the forecast but it started with ice so the Friday rush hour was a mess. It's cold today be we got plowing done and trail grooming mostly done so after lunch will be nice whether skis or a bicycle. It is cold so the the plan is start a fire and come back to it after each lap.

    My car tires are at end of their snow-rated life but still did fine. My new bike tires are studded and about as monster as they get and I feel lazy about waxing or dealing with ski gear so I know how I'll earn a beer today.

    Our ski club facility with alpine, Nordic, jumping & biathlon range is in that map. As board secretary I see 10 years with recent being worst of less natural snow we can depend on, more challenges to make snow, and challenges that include more dry and flooding. The record includes things such as budget, repairs and ski patrol reports of opening and lesson program reports of more weather challenges to hold classes. The snowmaking crew logs also point to change such as big runs of snow making not lasting. A few big runs of snowmaking are no longer sufficient for most of the season. Part of biking becoming so much more popular is an inability to predict or count on skiing the way many could. We have more and more new fat/snow bikers who are Nordic skiers who've given up counting on snow.

    Yes, and it's pretty interesting how many California cities are in the ocean.

    I prefer Waterworld over Mad Max.

    Ever see Mel Gibson in a band?!
