Snow accumulation as of Sat am

The trusty yard stick measured a total of 28" of snow at 11am. It was 22" last night. Power out at 10:15PM back on at 12:45am. We are lucky. Lots of people are without power in town. My high riding Nissan truck hasn't been dug out yet, and the snow if half way up the doors (today's the day).
The storm due 2nite is going to be packing high winds, so brace for possible power outages (we're making dinner right now, washing clothes and taking showers . . .) Some events in town for 2nite have been cancelled - check for updates. I've been seeing traffic on the hill, but I wouldn't chance it . . . heard a tree came down on Pasquale, but I believe it has been removed by now.
DUI's aren't funny, but did you read about the Truckee woman who hit and ran a car then got picked up 25 minutes later STILL driving her damaged truck while intoxicated. Her name? Denise DRINKS. OK, a little funny (no one hurt).
Stay warm and safe. Good night for candelight poker.

Big Traffic problems in town yesterday from snow

It snowed all the way to Alta Sierra Wed. We arrived home from the Bay Area at 4pm, about 15 minutes ahead of the storm. Those caught in town were jammed up all evening, with folks even abandoning their 2 wheel drive cars. Lots of fender benders. Today is beautiful and sunny, but the big hill looks icy & dicey and sign says road closed. Garbage truck got sideways on Pasquale AGAIN this am. Be careful out there. More snow due 2nite. About 1 foot on the ground as of this moment (1:50 pm).

Snow Arrived

It started snowing about 8pm Sunday night. Woke up to about 5" of brand new fluffy stuff, with just enough moisture to make killer know balls for the dog to catch. It's a winter wonderland again. I'll try to add a picture.
Watched the Grammy's last night. It was a classy show this year, with lots of variety in the live performances. Did you know that Barack Obama has received two grammy's for the readings of his books? I looked it up to see what other politicians have grammy's for readings. The list includes Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton and Jimmy Carter. Who knew? There must be alot of catgories they don't mention on the awards program. Anyway, if you like this year's winners, look for a CD collection in the near future. They make one each year, and it's always my favorite to buy. It really captures the music history of the year.

Plans for Valentines Day?

Hey all, only 5 more days to make plans to celebrate with your honey. I will be bartending at the party at the Miners Foundry. There will be 2 bands, (Blue Turtle Seduction and Ten Mile Tide) dancing, no-host bar, chocolate and sushi (what a combo) and photography. So put on your best VD duds and come on down. These bashes are fun! If you're there, be sure to say hi.
