Brian Lada of Accuweather dropped us a note about hiking in the Sierra during this deep drought.  We were happy to send him some info, and pleased that he included it in his national syndicated story!

The drought probably played a crucial role in the success of the first recorded north to south winter traverse of the PCT.  The following link describes some of the gear these intrepid strollers packed along.

Thanks for sharing this. It's a good article, though a sad subject for your region. The pictures of Half Dome are especially illustrative.

I'll be hoping you get a lot of snow this winter.

You won't be alone, Alicia.  Please do your rain and snow dances, everyone!

I think that's pretty cool -- I've never been quoted in a weather article. But at least now I know someone who was. ;-)

Cool! 

My wife quotes me sometimes but it's usually for different reasons, haha.
