For sure. THe lake sometime has double the depth on the back as opposed to the front.

So many runs so little time.

This is exactly right. WB is too damn big for it too be accurate. It could dump on 7th Heaven while it is sunny at the peak and show a snowfall of 3cm at Pig Valley (where they measure the snow). Not saying it's intentional, it's just wrong 90% of the time.
