Under typical  (what is typical anymore?) spring SWE (snow/water/equalivant) this 1.7″ of H20 would translate to 17″ of snow @ 10% density (or whatever, you do the math).  This rain event was nice but it subtracted from the already thin snow pack depth by shrinking/melting our Snow Bank that represents a slower run-off through gradual melting.
