The Sierra snowpack is now the worst it’s been in a century. Reno Public Radio's Michelle Bliss reports.
Jeff Anderson, with the Natural Resources Conservation Service, just measured 13.2 inches of water content in the snowpack up at the Mt. Rose summit. In a normal season, there would be about 90 inches of snow.
“When you look at the mountains right now," he says, "and you look at the snow that’s up there, you’re really seeing history.”
