Crater Lake Has Record Low Snow Levels

Crater Lake is experiencing record low snow levels for this time of year.  Sunday it was at 37 inches. That's about a third of what the average depth is for this date. Marsha McCabe works for the park. She explains where she notices the lack of snow the most:

"It's pretty unusual because you can actually see out of the windows on the first floor of the buildings. Which, normally this time of year, they would be buried."

Despite the low snow pack, precipitation levels are around average for the region. McCabe says the rain is good, but it won't help in the spring and summer seasons when the water comes from snow run-off.
