Rain on Snow

What a year, weather-wise. It finally stopped snowing in late June and we had snow and lows in the single digits by early September. November was largely kind of nice, for a winter month. When we received snows they were very cold. Unless you turned your irrigation back on in mid-November, the soils were bone-dry under the snow. This wet snow and rain is good for the roots. The soils remain largely unfrozen under the snow and this water will help maintain late-fall through winter root system growth. The down-side of rain on snow is of course, damage from weight. If you see trees or shrubs buckling under the mass, give them a shake and let the “Sierra Cement” accumulate around the trunk and base to provide moisture and protection once it freezes again.
