Last weekend we were trying to figure out if we wanted to go skiing.
It was raining outside and a quick look at the Federal Aviation Administration’s vertical velocity sonar and weather stations across the area indicated that it was also raining up at Eaglecrest Ski Area.
This wasn’t an isolated event.
It has rained a lot this winter. In fact, at higher elevations, it has rained more than I remember in the previous three winters.
When I sat down to write this column, it was easy to decide what to write about this week.
