el nina giving my local (Cypress) mtn  in North Vancouver BC a good spanking today:

over 69cm (27 inches) of new snow in 24 hr  icon14.gif  ...still coming down too at 8pm

(will be interesting tomorrow morning when I log on to find the amount we got over both 24-48 hrs)

....raining heavily down below in city (expecting 40-70mm+ of rain) but holding at minus 1-2 celcius so any precipitation that is coming down is staying as snow on the mtnsbiggrin.gif

 

whistler getting a good (but lesser) spanking too.(37 cm of snow last 24 hrs)

first my mistake in noting it as el nina: it should be spelled as la nina

 

 la nina from what i've read (see link below) is the opposite of el nino, meaning a colder sometimes more prolonged winter

Actually that's not entirely correct either.  Last year was an El Nino year and the Sierras killed it.  Typically El Nino years suck in the northwest and are awesome in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Southern Colorado.  The opposite is usually the case on La Nina years.
