RE: [John Muir Trail] Re: Snow conditions/predictions for 2012
Much as I hate to get into flame wars I had exactly the same reaction as Ron. Ned is too much of a gentleman to reply to that kind of flame.
I get really tired of reading your jabs at some folks, postholer.
Your post was fine until the last line, and then you're an a-hole. What gives? Can't you just give it up on Thanksgiving?
Not sure why I bother when I can just hit the delete and see your post go into the bit-bicket, but I guess it just bugs me when people are jerks for no reason.

The dividing line for El Nino/La Nina events runs right through the Lake Tahoe area.
That means the area can receive the worst of either events OR the least of either events. No one knows, no one can predict it.
With a huge snow year behind us, the probability of a consecutive monster year is greatly reduced. If I had to bet the ranch based solely on this I'd bet for an average or lower snow year, not a big one.
Again, no one knows, certainly not me.
What Ned should have said is, "he doesn't know". But if you're selling snow services as Ned is, I 'spose it helps to imply the worst conditions possible for July.
