Not long, I like being able to drive roads in the high Sierras unabated.
How have the storms been in Sierras this year? LA is off to a very dry start this winter and I'm worried the snow pack hasn't been the greatest in the mountains this season.

Haven’t been up there too much but I haven’t heard much in the way of chain restrictions.  All the rivers are largely dry or close to down in the valley.  The coastal ranges have had almost no rain this year.

It normally starts to warm up around February 20 where I live. Or at least the worst of winter is over. I like our normal winter with highs in the 50s. Cold like we’ve had since Christmas Eve I can do without.

Dec. 22 to March 21 is fine.  Of course, I don't associate winter with frequent snowstorms.

It can end day before yesterday, for all I care.

I have to make my daily 12-mile trek to work in a foot of sn*w today

Depending on how much snow I get a season, I can agree.

Apparently I’m a fan of I-69.  Who knew.
