But in the Sierra's the snow is 37 feet deep at the point

Sorry, the rain rain go away title fooled me...

heh heh Arnold spent a short term posing as a conservative

Maybe but the point was California’s governors since Reagan were not
exclusively democrats.


But except for Deukmejian they sure as hell weren't Republicans by any stretch of the imagination.
