This winter is the snowiest on Donner Summit in the Sierra Nevada mountains since reliable snow measurement began in 1971.

This winter is by far the snowiest that I have experienced in Truckee, California, and records from the Central Sierra Snow Lab show that it is the snowiest since record keeping began in 1971. No other year even comes close. Snow totals are roughly double what a median year would have by this day of winter. In recent days, a lot of people have become worried about snow loads on roofs, especially for buildings built before building codes were modernized in the 1960s.
