It apparently isn't making it's way to Lake Powell or Lake Meade!

No, it's apparently leaving Mead and Powell faster than it's entering.

3 winters of record-breaking snowmelt in Colorado feeding Mead and Powell. Somebody might want to audit California's books. They can't even tell the truth long enough to keep the lights on there in a 1st world country in the 21st century.


From the article I posted earlier:

Lake Powell, which represents the majority of the Upper Colorado River Basin’s water supply, has still not recovered from the drought in the early 2000s. It takes more hits from each new drought. The system had a nice recovery from the 2018 drought, but still hasn’t made up lost ground from another drought in 2012-2013. Unfortunately, we’ll put 2021 down as another year to further deplete this system.

And this year's snow-water equivalent doesn't match with the tables you provided:
