News for Twain Harte


Posted by Annie in Family Fun, Twain Harte News on November 25, 2015

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.

You can find many Winter Driving Emergency Survival Tips here. Be safe!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I went outside just now and I didn’t know if it was snowing snowflakes or feathers. I swear it looked like someone had a big huge pillow fight out there! It’s wet too.

Here…this will give you an idea:

Check the Calendar — more snow predicted


Posted by Shawn & Annette in Twain Harte News on May 25, 2011

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.

Consider joining us on Facebook, if you haven’t already. I try to post daily and pass along important news items of interest to locals and visitors.

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.
