Truffles anyone?

Went to the Firehouse at 1:30 today for a Chocolate Truffle class given by Linda Lumos. This was a Womens Club event. Paid $10 for materials, left with a dozen big fat truffles, and most importantly, the knowledge to make LOTS more! There were about 10 of us attending. Thanks CSWC! Next event is a group lunch at Diego's in Grass Valley (yum) and they are planning the kids Easter Party at Firehouse. There was also talk of volunteering as a group for election day, and donating the $ you get paid to CSWC to help with the events planned for year. Great group of ladies!
WOKE up to 3" of fresh fluffy stuff. What a suprize. It was in the 20's at 6am. Burrrr, but sunny and beautiful by afternoon.

2:30 on Monday and it's coming down!

Whew, just in the last 10 minutes the sky opened up and some heavy mix of snow/hail/ice is coming down fast! Already saw a tow truck on the big hill, so be careful out there coming in or out of the shores!
5pm. Still coming down and cable just went down. They're taking it slow on the hill. Looking like a black & white photo out there. March is such a fooler. One day you are basking in the sun, next day looking for the snow shovel!

New Goddess of the Lake

At the CSHA meeting last week, the outgoing members unofficially handed their duties to the soon to be confirmed members. My job as Supervisor of Lost Mine Lake (I prefer to be referred to as Goddess of the Lake) has been joyfully handed over to Pam Herrenkohl. Pam also works for County of Nevada, rescues Great Danes, has a big beautiful family and LOVES Cascade Shores. She'll do a great job. She's on facebook and has a great profile page if you want to know more. Chuck Jaffe is taking over my duties as Web content manager. Chuck is one half of Chuck and Marvina, 2 of the most fun and interesting people I have met here in the shores. He is also the film reviewer for The Union, & produces his CampChuck Reviewer annual movie newsletter. I know he'll keep the website fresh and interesting, with the assistance of Walt, our great Webmaster (Walt is invisible, kind of a wizard of Oz guy, that you never actually meet, as he lives in cyber-space, or Yuba City, same difference). Chuck has a facebook profile too if you want to check him out. Harry Wander (our roads dude) will take over the Presidency from Kent Rees. Kent's term was very successful, and he totally got our budget under control amongst other important accomplishments. I'll report more on the changes after the annual meeting.
I'm planning on continuing this blog, maintain the Firehouse book exchange, and attend Lake events and such as a visitor. I think I've been with the Board in come capacity for 8 years, so it's time to lay off and give other folks a chance to make things happen. I've had a lot of fun, it's been a lot of work, but I just love this community, and look forward to seeing what the new Board will tackle.
Snow gone, but it's still c-o-l-d out there. 30 degrees this morning. Brian Harrison, of Harrison Construction, who did an amazing living room addition on our house a year and a half ago (that long already) is ripping out our old bathroom and making us a shiny new one now. We have a nice gaping hole to the crawl space for a few days, and that makes it even COLDER in the house. Oh well, ya gotta break eggs to make an omelete, right? Brian's the best, and big fun to work with, and I can't wait to see the end product. If you have any construction needs, he's THE MAN!
