Winter Already?


Posted by Shawn & Annette in Outdoors, Twain Harte News on May 25, 2012

This morning we have had rain, hail and even snow. I know it’s Memorial Day weekend, and it’s supposed to be nice outside. We could have a repeat of 2010…remember when they closed the pass in June? It’s only May, but still…

Mymotherlode reports:

English: Mountain Pass Sign, Sonora Pass, CA S...

Mountain Passes Closed

Two Mother Lode mountain passes are closed due to the changing weather conditions.

Because of the winter-like weather, Highway 108 Sonora Pass is now closed at Kennedy Meadows, and Highway 4 Ebbetts Pass is closed at the Mount Reba turnoff. Caltrans says it was done primarily as a precautionary measure.

There is a weather advisory until 6:00 p.m.  We are expecting high winds and we could get as much a 8 inches of snow before it’s done!

Here’s a video I took this morning.

Winter has just begun


Posted by Shawn & Annette in Outdoors on February 12, 2012

Well, I think we might finally see some snow. It started raining and my guess is that it’ll turn to snow before it’s over. There are a lot of local businesses that depend upon the snow; Dodge Ridge comes mind, but don’t forget about the rafting businesses like Zephyr Whitewater Rafting.

We could still get enough snow to have a good season. Some folks are saying when it falls this year, we may get more than we bargained for. At this stage of the game it’s anybodies bet. All I can say is we’re prepared to wait it out. Well, as best as one can be prepared.

We’ve been busy around here with two new Shih tzu puppies, that are cute as can be!

If we ever do get winter I’m ready. I have a snow guage and two rain guages that I’d love to check out. We can only hope.
