It isn’t your imagination. March snowfall really was extraordinary. In fact, the snowfall received in the Lake Almanor Basin during March 2011 easily broke the old record for the month.
The monitoring site on the West Shore recorded a total of 131 inches of snowfall during March, which is now the new record for the month. That’s just an inch shy of 11 feet of snow, most of which arrived during the nine-day period March 18 – 26.
