    "Lake Tahoe has had a great past few months, receiving 8.7 billion gallons of water in just two days. It hasn’t stopped there; the lake has been receiving tremendous amounts of water lately to fill the lake above its natural rim level. The sudden rise in lake level is a result of several winter storms that hit the lake in late 2016 and early 2017. The National Weather Service calculated that since Jan 1st of 2017 the lake has gained over 40 billion gallons of water." https://www.yahoo.com/news/m/dca208...b0c8ab8/ss_lake-tahoe-gained-8.7-billion.html

    Absolutely magnificent place! Years ago, while vacationing from Chicago, we drove all the way around the lake! It took the entire day! One of the deepest and highest lakes in the U.S. Frank

    I had forgotten Fresno is as far north as it is. We also drove to Pyramid Lake once, still farther north, I believe, a lot of Tribal Reservation land up there.

    Speaking of California drought....I never thought I'd say I'm sick of all the rain we're having but I am sick of it.

    The drought has to be over this year especially after the melt off in the spring. I don't remember it raining this much in the winter since I moved here in 2003.
