Mono Lake Top Ten from 2008 … #10

December 22nd, 2008 by Mono Lake Committee Staff

It’s nearing the end of 2008–time to take stock of things and to take a look back at the year behind in order to prepare for the year ahead. It’s also the time of year when radio and TV shows do countdowns and “top ten” lists. We’ve gathered our own top ten list of great things that have happened for Mono Lake in 2008 to share with you, one per day, leading up to the New Year.

So, without further ado, the Mono Lake Top Ten from 2008:

Mono Basin Winter Update: Cold and stormy weather has arrived

Hydrology Update for 12/18/08

December 18th, 2008 by Greg, Information & Restoration Specialist

Mono Lake dropped 0.08 feet this past week and currently is at the low point for the year: 6382.07′. This was a bit unexpected, considering the cold and wet weather we’ve had this past week. But it wasn’t that wet and it was very cold. It does make sense, since inflow from Rush Creek is the lowest in decades. Also, the extreme cold weather has turned liquid into solid, resulting in a reduced inflow to Mono Lake–because solid doesn’t flow!

If the lake drops any more at all, it is off the gauge–and we wouldn’t know the level until … more »

Wet in Los Angeles

December 18th, 2008 by Geoff, Executive Director

I’m in Los Angeles this week–in fact, a day longer than planned thanks to some large early winter storms. Downtown received several inches of rain on Monday. On Wednesday, as I wrapped up my Mono Lake visits at the City Council and Department of Water and Power, it was raining again–a lot!

… and I am back in the office for the winter! This year’s Outdoor Experiences season was probably the longest in the history of the program–we started in May and finished in mid-November; a record seven months! This year, we also celebrated the 15th anniversary of the program.

I can happily say that … more »

Snow is falling!

December 15th, 2008 by Arya, Communications Director

Much-anticipated snowfall began last night here in Lee Vining and is continuing this morning. It’s still a little blustery, definitely cold, and I’m hoping that the big cloud hanging over town has more snow in it for us.

This is good news for Mono Lake. Jonathan is a strong environmental advocate who understands the critical linkage between water conservation, water recycling, and the City’s environmental responsibility to the lake.
