CSHA Annual Meeting

Sat, April 1st at 1PM is the annual HomeOwners meeting. All residents/members are urged to attend the meeting, and find out what's going on with the board. Doug Ferrel from the Road will be there to discuss snow removal issues in the shores. This is your chance to ask questions and meet your neighbors. The board is still looking for a replacement for VP Robert Crabb. If you are interested in getting involved, this would be a good time to step forward~
So far so good on power staying on through this storm. Heard some homes lost power on other side of store earlier today, but it's been good on our side. The plow has been doing a good job, and Pasquale is in good shape.
If you facebook, check out Nevadacountyweather. Just locals discussing the weather here in Nev. County.
Sunday: it's alternating between rain and snow now, lightly snowing at 2pm. Are we going to Dixie and Roberts party at the National at 3pm? Heck yes!

No Water Service in Cascade Shores

update: it's 10am sat morn in the Shores, and we got 18" of snow overnight. Calm now. I have not seen the plow this am (heard it last night about 11pm). Lights and water are on! enjoy your weekend. The next storm should move in later on Sunday, with high winds and more precipitation.
Well, at about 8am the water disappeared. Seems someone (??????) went out of their way to drive 8 ft. off the pavement at the store intersection to hit the ONLY fire hydrant I've ever even noticed around there. NID is telling you it's fixed, and they are waiting for pressure to build to return service to your home, but the workers have brought in a digger and they tell me it will be another few hours before we have service again . . . .
Dixie just called. She says it's spittin' snow out there. Hope it's a light one.
The Womens Club hobby/dessert day last Wed. was totally fun. It was amazing to see all the beautiful and complex arts created by locals. I marvel at their talent. From intricate lost-art type of sewing (Jan Guevel) really creative scrapbooking/cards (Carol Carter) knitting (Anna Rees) basket weaving (Karen Hatton) and prize winning quilts (Judy). Linda Lumos brought her wedding cakes album and a beautiful tuscan design wedding cake (fake, but amazing) and if I am forgetting someone, I am sorry. Karen Lari brought her enchilada's, and so many wonderful deserts that I'll have to turn myself back into Weight Watchers. Nicely done! The club is planning an outing to a local production of The King and I, and a visit to the Tulip/Daffodil garden tour of Ananda Village in April. See their calendar on
