The latest from Joe Blackwell. The Road Department will be plowing all of the Bucks Lake area roads today to try to keep them open through the holiday weekend. Joe reminds us that if a serious storm moves in, THEY WILL STOP PLOWING, and people will be responsible for getting their own vehicles out. There is a Wednesday/Thursday storm coming, so keep a weather eye out. MH

Yes, sad news. Long time Bucks Lake cabin owner, Ken Malmquist, died this morning in Reno. He wife was at his side. I understand there will be private services. MH
From Joe Blackwell, Plumas County Road Department:
The County will plow and try to keep the Bucks Lake roads open through Thanksgiving weekend. However, any storm that deposits a foot of snow over night at Bucks Summit will end plowing for the season.
Keep that really in mind if you decide to go to the cabin for Thanksgiving. And, it is now 4X4 only on the cabin access roads.
Here’s the latest on conditions, courtesy of Greg Vaughn. The Back Road detour is STILL in place. Yuck. Butte County is not plowing, so there is snow and lots of rutted ice on the road. Plumas County IS plowing, and 6″ to 8″ of snow on the ground.
Looking a lot like winter…….
Winter continues to slide toward us. A little snow tomorrow, maybe some more in a few days. All the paving around Bucks is done, and although I don’t know for sure, I think the back road is finally done.
The groomer is ready. Bucks Lodge is about to get a roof. (Really!) Snowmobiles are in for service. So …….
