Just to follow up with what JFRCalifornia said in that parts of the south shore of Lake Nacimiento, west of Paso Robles, received over 15" of rain Wednesday and Thursday Jan. 27,28. The runoff brought up the 2300 acre lake 25 feet or 67,000 acre feet of water in 2 days. Our dock and launch ramp were close to being high and dry without any rain. Thats a good thing for us as our houseboat to replace the burned out Antiqua from last July in Last Chance Bay will not be done until October or later so we were not going to Powell again this year. And yes Mammoth Mountain ski area in the Sierras received about 9.5 feet of snow. Hopefully this moved east over the Powell drainage basin.

More help coming this week. At least we are in a more normal western storm track and maybe we can get the snowpack closer to long term average.

When I lived in Southern California Lake Nacimiento was one of my favorite lakes. At full pull is has a gorgeous shoreline and I believe it is 26 miles long. For me the problem was that the water fluctuated so much that you never knew what lake you were dealing with. I do miss it though.

And it’s shaped like a dragon when it’s full... yes, a very pretty lake, and nice to have it nearby...

The rainfall totals here on the central coast of CA were fantastic (my rain gauge was closer to 7-8 inches over the storm, and that’s maybe 25 miles south of Nacimiento), let’s just hope it continues soon and translates eastward too...

After a morning skiing Nacimiento we would idle up the waveless section and enjoy the views. I hope it is getting lots of moisture.
