Well, that was a doozy!

My my, the snow just kepta comin! There is about a foot on the ground, though it is the nice fluffy stuff, not the cement we got in November. The power has been iffy, and in fact was just restored at 5pm today (Sat) after going out in the wee hours last night. We woke up at 3am to fireworks here at the corner of BQH and Pasquale, when the a power wire snapped on the transformer. Fireworks and flames for about 10 minutes, looked like a lovely roman candle. Bill Carter saw the light from a block behind on Nugget St. Took out power, cable, phone. We called the fire department, and they said they were on the way, but had to wait for the plow to clear the road for them to come in from NCity. Very exciting. But lovely blue skies shined thru today (what is that bright blue stuff above, and that light?????). Plow has done a great job of keeping the big hill clear. Personally, I have been in bed since Monday with the worst flu/grunge EVER, and let the whole mess stack up inside and out. Just feeling human today.
Met a guy clearing driveways with his fancy Kabota. HIs name is Ken Bilderback, and you can reach him at 530-400-7979 for snow removal. Very nice. Drove here from Grass Vally to help us out and make a few bucks. Keep that number handy! Angels sent him . . . . . .

Last nights storm

Well, the news really sensationalized last nights storm, and though it was really windy in the wee hours, and we got nearly an inch of snow (now slushing up) the roads are clear and the power only out about 4 hours, coming back on at 7:30 am.
Good news, the doxies, all 5, got homes. Thanks if you spread the word for me.
1PM update on weather: snow coming down again, pretty heavy, and sticking. Imagine the hill is getting treacherous. Last sunday a UPS truck "lost it" and rolled on top part of hill in just such conditions. Be careful out there! Pasquale might be your best bet.
