We’ve had snow on and off again but not any accumulation to speak of. I have however heard many more police sirens than is usual for Twain Harte. Well, at least I assume it’s police, could be the ambulance, we hope not.
Winter fun up the hill from Twain Harte, California
It’s still 37 degrees in Soulsbyville, but the higher you go, the more the temperature drops. It’s currently 28 degrees F. in Twain Harte right now. Cold enough for the roads to freeze. Be sure to slow down on these mountain roads, it’s easy enough to hit a patch of ice and spin out of control. You could end up in tree or worse.
Friday Snowplay will be opening! I hope all you snowbunnies have fun out there on the tubes. The trip up and back should be a good one. Things can happen. Be sure you are prepared for the weather, you never know when your going to have to wait for a tow truck. Assuming of course you have cell service with which to call.
I can hardly believe it but the National Weather Service is predicting more snow in the Motherlode. It’s been cold and rainy for most of the day. I guess “cold” is a relative thing — it was 50°, which wasn’t all that horrible but with the overcast skies and drizzling rain, let’s just say we didn’t feel the urge to go on a picnic.
I did manage to follow the doctors orders and do a little walking. When the rain finally stopped, I did a little power walking around the deck. It really made me wish it went all the way around the house, instead of just half way. I’m thankful for the flat boards, these killer hills can do a number on the knees.
The news is calling for up to 2 inches of snow down to 4500 feet. We’ve had some pretty good wind gusts over the past few hours, with more expected. It could get pretty cold tonight. It’s already 44°, we’ve closed the windows and turned our Dr. Heaters back on, they are one of the best investments we have ever made. They are half the price of the other leading brand and they have saved us hundreds on our electric bill. If you are looking for ways to cut your heating costs, do check out the Dr. Heater.
