Just Some Stuff

Some interesting stuff I've come across:
  • Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire, which I lived next to for 5 years, just had its earliest "Ice Out" in the records, which go back to1888. Not only that, it shattered the old record by 4 days.
  • Snowpack in the Cascade Mountains in Oregon is 50% - 85% of normal, and what snow there is has a water content less than normal. This is a big deal for Oregon and its agriculture, as this snowpack is where they get much of their water. The state agricultural department says it's due to El Nino.
