Is this the Eastern Sierra or Fargo?
This is what it presently looks like just north of Bishop--40 miles from Mammoth and 3,000 feet lower than the ski resort. We ran into snow 15 miles south of Big Pine.
I've been coming to Mammoth for 15 years and had never seen that much snow that far south on 395 in the Owens Valley. The forecast is for two to three feet of snow tonight in Mammoth--on top of whatever they got pummeled with today.
I've got my skates in the cartop carrier and to be honest I'm getting wood just thinking about a ski-skate day. Mammoth has a nice outdoor rink and I am praying it's snowing for ice time.
Btw, I literally dreamed I was practicing backwards crossovers last night. There is probably something deeply wrong with me.
