AGW – Remember the Donner Party

The Mercury News reports, “Sierra Nevada snowpack is biggest in 22 years — and more snow is on the way“.

After a month of huge blizzards and “atmospheric river” storms, the Sierra Nevada snowpack — source of a third of California’s drinking water — is 177 percent of the historic average, the biggest in more than two decades.

Gov. Jerry, “Moonbeam“, Brown is calling for all travelers in the Sierra Nevada’s, especially around the Donner Pass area, to carry at least 3 months worth of supplies because, “You remember how hungry those Donner Party folks got during the winter of ’46-’47.”
