A BIT OF A DISAPPOINTMENT

Yup. Not the 22″ the Weather Service promised. More like 6 – 10″. This storm did what so many others in dry winters do. It split. I think we got about 1/4 of it in Northern Cal. And the other 75% went on down the coast. A ton at Mammoth. Well, they need it too.

Still, we wanted it to get cold so we would not lose the snow, and that will happen in the extreme. 11 tonight, and 9 on Sunday night. That should be cold enough for most people. Several days before the next one. Fingers crossed that it meets our request…..

AND MORE SNOW

About 4″ as of just before 2 pm. If the Weather Service forecast holds true, we should have about 22″ by Saturday afternoon. Then it would be REALLY nice if we could dispense with the rain…, let’s just have snow now….

ABOUT THAT CHRISTMAS TREE

Did you see the recent piece on the cost of a Christmas tree in New York City? A nice 8′ fir…… Brace yourself: $450!! How nice to be able to pay a fee to the PNF and get a perfect, perfectly fresh fir, that will not be a fire danger. We are so fortunate. As long as we can get in and out without getting stuck (Thanks, Joe Blackwell), we have the best trees in the country.

Thanks, Plumas National Forest….

Now, hoping our first snow does not wash away during the next few days. Remember the “old days,” when it was all snow at Bucks? For the last several years, every time we get a decent snow cover, we get warm storms and it washes away. But, hey, our new President Elect says global warming is a Chinese strategy. Who knew they could dictate the snow level at Bucks Lake? Sigh……
