NEW POST

Well, that beats the tree well reference. So winter…..

Roads are plowed, there is a little mud, lake is high. Might just be getting toward serious summer. PG&E says there is still 25″ of water equivalent to melt. And that with the lake spilling for the last 6 weeks.The only other thing that would make things more ideal right now would be social tranquility. Hopefully, we are getting there, and Bucks will be a fun place once again…..

THAT’S A TREE WELL

Remember, when you look at the snow gauge, it is on a tree, in a tree well. Add about two feet to what you see. For reference, all the STOP signs are buried, and they are 8 feet tall.

THE NUTSO CONTINUES

As close as I can estimate, we got 67″ of snow fall during the last 24 hours. That is just more than enough. Mother Nature, can you hear me? Please…..

RIDICULOUS

Yup. A ridiculous amount of snow over night. As close as I can tell, there is about 53″ of new snow over night.

I continue to be impressed with the Ranger. It made it up Mile High to the Dam Road just now. I had to back up and run at it several times, as the “sierra cement” just piles up in front and does not go anywhere. This much snow has to be just about the limit of what the Ranger will handle.

AND STILL MORE WINTER

This is going down as a February to remember. (Or forget….) Since February 1, I have recorded 162″ of snow fall. I could be a little off, but so what. What I do know is that my shoulders and back feel like we have had all the winter we need. Now, if only Mom Nature would get that message…..

AND MORE WINTER….

Starting last Saturday, February 2, Saturday: 6″; Sunday: 19″; Monday: 30″; Tuesday, (assuming it is done for today): 12″. Add it up…. Really not much more to say. And the current forecast for next weekend it for 42″ of total snow fall. Mother Nature has my permission to stop after that…..

WINTER? FINALLY

At the cabin, Saturday snow total: 10″. Sunday snow total: 38″. That is not a typo. I managed to get the Ranger out to the Dam Road on Sunday. Zero visibility, just felt my way. And it seemed, as it often does, that the snow was about 6″ deeper there. On the Dam Road, I drove to the kiosk, and then gave up, as I could not see.

Forecast for the rest of the week is wet. But, the snow level is supposed to be around 6500 feet. Our new snow will soak up a lot of rain before is starts to fall apart. I hope that does not happen…

Notice from the Road Department. The County will NOT be plowing during the storms of the next few days, and winter road closures will go into effect. And they will NOT BE PLOWING TO GET STUCK VEHICLES OUT.

Please share this far and wide…..

BUCKS LAKE HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION – IMPORTANT

If you are an Association member, you have likely received an email from our President, Bill Nicholau, today, July 3. It is important that you read it carefully. Then open and read the attached statement from our Treasurer, Renee Russell.

BOTH STATEMENTS ARE FACTUAL AND TRUE.

SNOW? BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR…

We got 40″ at the cabin yesterday, Thursday. We did learn that the new Ranger will handle it, a pleasant surprise. And the power is still on. At least for now….
