Looks like a nice storm for all of California early part of next week. They need it. Been a very dry start to the water year for them. Royal Gorge, a big XC ski area in the Sierras is closed for lack of snow.

Wow. Still a lot of time left, but way off last year's pace.

On page 3 of this thread I have a bunch of Cali webcams I found. Not sure if any will be good for viewing or working come sun rise for the flooding/heavy snow but figured Id share.

Sometimes I wonder if California is overbuilt, that its carrying capacity is lower than its current population.

Ehh maybe its more along the lines that we are starting to see areas where severe or extreme weather conditions, that do happen in a lot of these areas, being highlighted because of human impact and poor planning on the local and state governments of land development and decreasing infrastructure to be able to handle such things that do occur. Cali is no stranger from getting systems like this that drop 3-5" of rain over a relatively short period of time to cause flooding concerns. Its the planning of housing developments and road structures that were not planned well at all and have heard reports that many of these places having issues north of LA were built within a river that once would flow through the area that now is more of a ravine then anything now.

They need to get the housing situation and natural resource usage (namely water) under control and stop letting people build where they want with government approval too and not laying the hammer down on it. Emergency planning is eventually going to take a part of housing regulations soon because the government is only going to bail out places a certain amount of times. More than one is already enough.

Ending my rant but it is a shame many have to go through this and hope they can get a better balance taking place not only out there but in a lot of other places.

Yup, extreme weather has been occurring since the beginning of time, the 200 year history of man and weather tracking doesn't scratch the surface.
