    Was just reading a book called The Emerald Mile. It describes the meteorological conditions beginning in 1982 that led up to epic snowfall in the Sierras and the American West in early 1983 -- for example, it snowed for 45 days straight in Crested Butte. More to the point of the book, the resulting snowmelt, and massive inflow into Lake Powell, combined with errors in the management of water release, created a situation that came very, very close to resulting in the failure of Glen Canyon Dam. But that also created ideal conditions for a few people to attempt to set a record for the fastest descent of the entire length of the Grand Canyon.

    But more relevant to your post, the description of what sets the El Niño in motion is captivating (to me) and Kevin Fedarko's description of the start of the El Niño and the events that sets in motion is epic.

    This is the start of Chapter 13: Deluge

    The massive storms that drew Grua's and Petschek's attention during the winter of 1983 were the handiwork of something enormously complex and fantastically remote -- a meteorological anomaly that had been triggered seven months earlier on the far edge of the Pacific Ocean, more than eight thousand miles to the west of the Grand Canyon. The ripple effects of that event would spend the better part of a year cutting almost half way across the globe, playing havoc with weather systems from the jungles of South American to the Canadian Arctic. But nowhere would the repercussions be greater than in the western United States -- especially withing the Colorado River Basin. The Emerald Mile by Kevin Fedarko, pages 181-189
    Foot note on page 182: Although the El Niño of 1982-83 was the largest on record up to that point, it has since been surpassed by several subsequent southern oscillation events.

    Anyway, check your library for this book. Fedarko is an amazing writer and even if you don't have a library card, you can sit and read this chapter. Happy El Niño!
