Ben Nuckolls caught this pic of a mountain lion in the Tiger Creek area in early March. Photo courtesy to the Amador Ledger Dispatch

Question: I live in Kern County and last December caught a mountain lion on our security camera. Then, last night about 6:45 p.m. I saw it walking on the road in front of my home with a cat in its mouth.

West-wide snowpack is melting earlier than usual, according to data from the fourth 2015 forecast by the United States Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service.

“Almost all of the West Coast continues to have record low snowpack,” NRCS Hydrologist David Garen said. “March was warm and dry in most of the West; as a result, snow is melting earlier than usual.”

Historically, April 1 is the peak snowpack. This year, the peak came earlier. There was little snow accumulation in March, and much of the...
