By ccrossen | May 3, 2010

There’s a good reason why this year seemed big – it was. We got a lot of snow. The Department of Water Resources just released its final snow survey of the season, reporting the state snowpack has grown to 143 percent of normal for this time of year across the 400-mile Sierra Nevada. The northern Sierra region had the largest snowpack — 188 percent of normal — followed by the southern Sierra at 139 percent. The central Sierra showed 121 percent.
