Drought and Lake Pillsbury, California

By: Dyan, 6:14 PM GMT on April 04, 2014

Thought I would post a few photos of Lake Pillsbury in Lake County California taken between January 1 2014 and April 3, 2014. In January the lake was at 9% capacity. Then we finally had some rain in February and March. On April 3 it was at 94% - looking good. Unfortunately the other lakes in the area are not faring so well ... Pillsbury has a larger watershed than most.

first rain

By: Dyan, 2:31 PM GMT on October 22, 2012

Well, had the first significant rainfall last night - and my weather station is down! Several days ago it reported, incorrectly, that we'd had 7.4 inches of rain (when there was none) so I cleared it back to 0. This morning it is still at 0 though we probably had at least half an inch. Will have to go up on the roof and see what's up La Crosse Professional Remote Weather Station

cooler weather helping the firefighters

Slightly cooler weather has helped the firefighters in northern CA though along with the cooling, it has been a bit windy. The North Pass Fire in Mendocino National Forest near Covelo still only 35% contained and a real challenge to fight, in steep remote forest.

Heat wave, fires and clouds

By: Dyan, 11:40 PM GMT on August 14, 2012

It's been a heat wave for the last week - today it was 102 here (down from yesterday's 106) and the fires over in Lake County about 30 miles away are making a lot of smoke. And, there some high clouds - muggy hot miserable to be outside kinda weather! High temps are forecast through the weekend and into next week. Not good news for the firefighters!

season total?

By: Dyan, 4:17 PM GMT on June 23, 2012

Yesterday's (June 22 2012) .04 inches of rain brought our season total to exactly 25 inches, here at the home weather station. Beautiful day today - cool and fresh.
