Some say yes, some say no, but El Nino is a go! 
El Nino is upon us! According to the scientists at the National Weather Service and the Climate Prediction Center, the telltale signs of El Nino are starting to emerge, align and settle. It looks as though these positive weather patterns have settled and the odds that El Nino is forming are very optimistic! Even better, there is hope for further development and strength increasing throughout the fall and winter. Yes!

With the warm ocean temps in the Tropical Pacific (hello recent hurricane’s off the West coast), and the extreme heat patterns that California has survived through this summer, an El Nino year is favorable.

Dan Collins, a scientist at the CPC recently said “We like to see temperatures at this level for about a month before we declare we have El Niño conditions”.

So let's all mark our calenders for October 19th, and all together say "El Nino Hooray"!

June Lake Fire Update 

Here's an update on the June Lake fire from the Mono County Sheriff's Department. The fire is at 50 acres, and it is still burning east of June Mountain toward the south side of town limits.

Also, there will be no recreational activities allowed on Gull Lake and June Lake today as fire helicopters will be using the water from the lakes for air dipping. Structure protection is still in full effect throughout town. Fire crews are ensuring the protection of structures. There is no damage to any structures at this time.

Road closure is from South Junction at 395 down to Oh Ridge Point on Hwy 158. Access can be made from Oh Ridge Point to North Shore Road. On the north end of Hwy 158, access is still available and open until the Peterson Tract/Rainbow Road.

Power has been cut off in June Lake from east of June Mountain, throughout the town and south junction. The power was cut to ensure firefighter safety. At this time, there is no estimated time when power will be turned back on. Along with the power outage, phone services, including land lines and cell phones, are still inoperable.

Dearest Mother Nature...ENOUGH ALREADY! 
Stop daydreaming and get back to work! But don’t fret, that will be you sitting in one of those loungers at the bottom of Chair 15 soon enough. If we can just get past the crazy hot temps in Los Angeles and the fires burning in Yosemite, we can move on! We must say to Mother Nature, “Enough already, we’re hot, we’re done with summer, we get it, you are a big strong beautiful sun, now cover yourself up and drench us with snow!”

Pictures like this inspire us to get down the box of snow clothes from the upper shelf in the garage, or move the jackets up to the front of the closet, in hopes that they will be needed soon. And they will be, but for now, stay cool and be cool by booking your winter condo early and receiving the deepest deals the season will offer. Click here for details or call us at 1-888-472-5777 to reserve your vacation rental today. Hey, it will get ya that much closer to your dreams…
