The Dam Road, (Bucklin Road), is now plowed but still icy. The crew will be back on Monday to continue west to the Butte County line.

Big Creek is open all the way. Countryman is done. The Highlands road is open but just to 4×4’s. The plowing crew is now on the Oro-Quincy Highway, and presumably they will do the Dam Road before heading toward Butte County.
Moderate rain today, 1.81″ before noon.
The County will start plowing tomorrow, Wednesday. They anticipate getting to the fire house by Friday, so keep that in mind if your plans take you to the lake. Other than where the snow has been in the shade all winter, this should go pretty fast, so where to park would be a very moving target every day. Best to just stay away, at least for a few days………
When you can see the dark colored planter in the picture, that means snow depth is one foot. That’s important, because the Road Department is contemplating when they will start to plow the basin. Sorry, I can’t tell you yet, because they have not specifically decided, but stay tuned. It won’t be too awfully long……
