Brighton had 331" season total at this time last weekend on their website. They now show 406" with a 7-day total of 35". What?!? If you add up what they report every morning, they got 65" so that should be a total of 396". It just never makes sense. None of this really matters from a practical standpoint. It snowed a lot and it's awesome. But when I'm trying to track these, it just makes me wonder what the hell is going on. And there's no way to verify it via telemetry right now.

🧵 As much as I've talked about our impressive snowpack in Utah (and it is VERY impressive), the numbers in the Southern Sierra are truly mind-boggling! #cawx #nvwx #cawater Just look at these basins via NRCS! The southeast Sierra Nevada, flowing into Mono Lake and Owens Valley is at an 8-station average of 452% of median! For this deep into the season, that's crazy!

The past 2 months has felt like I've had nothing to deliver but bad news -- an extreme drought, record setting hot temperatures with limited precipitation, and plenty of smoke. There is some optimism that perhaps the 2nd half of summer will be better than the first... 1/? As mentioned, we (SLC) have seen more triple digit days than ever before at this point in the summer. 17 as of today! The record for an entire year is 21, and it looks possible we could break this. However, we may not see another triple digit after today for awhile... 2/?
