Wow, is it every beautiful here today

The sun finally showed its face yesterday, and today was glorious. We grabbed the snowshoes and went to big lake thinking we would need them to make it to the beach. No need. The snow is all piled up in the middle of the lot, and only an inch or so on the ground. Saw 2 boats out on the lake, and wished we had brought kayaks instead of snowshoes. The asphalt is showing on all the roads, and the hill is easy day and night. No weather due for a few more days.
Big bash at the Foundry this weekend for MardiGras. Costume party Saturday night (Pirate theme) and hopefully the parade Sunday. I will be a bar wench, serving up demon alcohol. Come on down!
Talked to Toni down on Nuggett, and she said she stayed home for 9 whole days during the storms. We thought we had the record with 5 days. Saw lots of folks moving about the shores today catching the sun.
In my quest to see all the Academy Award Nominees, saw The Reader yesterday. Wow. You could hear a pin drop when it ended, and not a word spoken as people filed out of the theatre. It really brings up lots of emotion and conflicted feelings. If you love drama's, don't miss this one.

You know you are in grass valley when

Not to just copy Dixie, but you must type in the above to Google for a good laugh. It takes you to a facebook page that is way too funny, and way too true.
Weather report: When the hell will it stop snowing?????? Woke up to quarter size flakes, and 6" new stuff on the ground. Keeps rotating from snow to sleet. Supposed to be in the 50's tomorrow. Hard to imagine. Going out to shovel the 100' to the gate. The only reason the dogs think this is big fun is cause they can't actually hold a shovel. However, I did harness up Jenna yesterday as a sled dog to pull me and Harry Dog down Nugget St. Who's laughin now Jenna?
Pray for sun . . . . . . I looked at spring & summer pics of our "add on" project. It made me feel all warm allover.
See snow pic below.

How much snow in cascade shores?

Here is a picture taken 2/15/09. Snow is way deep for a fella with 4" legs. Harry (the one in the yellow slicker) gets a tow on Nuggett St.

Baby it's cold outside!

Happy Holiday (Washington's Birthday). We're getting a bit of rain/light snow mix here. The Big Hill looks clear, with plenty of traffic going up and down. The thermometer says 37, but I swear it feels like the 20's. Cold, mushy wet snow out there. The rain washed snow out of the trees, so it's not a black and white photo anymore. I actually saw a squirrel looking for a meal this AM.
If you know Karen Lari, she landed in Sierra Nevada Hosp. Sunday with pnenumonia (sp?) and will be coming home hopefully Tuesday night. She'd appreciate an encouraging word. Her home number is 478-1734.
