Snow Surveys in Lassen Show Subnormal Depth
April 6, 1955

Snow surveys of the Silver Lake and Norvell Flats areas made April 1 showed snow depths far below normal, the Lassen Advocate reports.

Silver Lake’s average snow depth was only 42 inches, 64 per cent of normal. At Norvell Flat, the average snow depth of 20 inches is only 53 per cent of normal. Water contents of the snow are correspondingly low.

The survey was made by Everett Sheldon and Ernie Draves of the U.S. Forest Service. They also inspected summer homes at Silver Lake and found no visible winter damage to any of the buildings.
