Wondering how much snow/rain Big Bear Lake gets each and every year? Below is a spreadsheet provided by the Big Bear Municipal Water District breaking down the monthly precipitation over the past 26 years. The average annual precipitation is roughly 36.35" per year but it's amazing to see the how much it varies from year to year (I've highlighted the 5 biggest years). Wouldn't it be nice if this winter was similar to 1993?
Every year, our local radio station KBHR (93.3FM) has the "KBHR Snowfall Sweepstakes", where the object is to predict the time and date of the first 9.3 inches of snow accumulation. Some years it happens early and some years you wonder if we'll ever get 9.3 inches of snow! There's lots of fun prizes (usually a snow blower, an annual ski pass, etc). So enter today. You can go to the following participating businesses and fill out a form:
Big Bear City Saw Works, Sonora Restaurant and Cantina, Stangl's Glass, The 38th Annual Big Bear Oktoberfest at the Convention Center, Del Lago's Boutique, Patriot Bear Heating and Air Services, The Paper Clip Stationers, Plaza Smoothies, Exciting Lighting and Home Decor, El Jacalito and The Hacienda Grill Restaurant, Big Bear Book and Bean, Hunter's Nursery, Butcher's Block and Building Materials, Hunter Halls, D & G Automotive, The Bowling Barn, Wild Bear Furniture Company, McDonalds of Big Bear Lake, Bear City Glass, Bear Valley Electric, The Carpet Barn, Big Bear Total Fitness, North Shore Trading Company, B's Backyard Bar-B-Q, Phil's Automotive, Big Bear Mattress Discounters, Alpenhorn Bed and Breakfast, Alpine Sports Center, Plaza Coffee and Smoothies, The Weight Room, and Women On The Move.
Lets all hope the snow falls and falls often this winter!
