Sunshine in the hills


Posted by Annie in Family Fun, Twain Harte News on December 26, 2010

The day after Christmas has turned out to be a gorgeous day. I had my doubts when the snow began falling last evening around 6 p.m. or so. A good inch of Sierra Cement fell through the night — the snow is really wet. It’s no wonder since the rain and snow fell intermittently right up through morning.

Basically, what we’ve been left with is a thin 1/2″ layer of slush, which, if the sun is any indication it won’t last long. It should be a wonderful day on the slopes at Dodge Ridge, with the fresh snowfall being added to the pack.

10″ of New Snowfall, Temp in the Mid 20’s, Perfect!

Sunday, Dec. 26 – Last night brought 10″ of fresh powder combined with cold temperature in the teens. For today we’ll have low temperatures in the mid 20’s with partly sunny skies and 41 groomed runs, by all definitions its going to be an incredible day on the slopes.

Kohl’s is having a sale in Sonora. If you haven’t already, sign up to receive e-mail specials from Kohl’s. Just today I received an e-mail taunting me with 15% additional savings — even on clearance merchandise. I do love saving money and if you plan to shop Kohl’s anyway, it just makes good financial sense to save as much as you can.

I read a rumor on Facebook over the weekend that Sonora will be seeing the addition of a Petco in the near future. In this economy it’s hard to believe so many large companies are taking a chance on building in Tuolumne County, especially in light of our high unemployment rate. Does anyone else have a sense of impending doom? Let’s hope all these new businesses bring prosperity to our area.

I’ll be cooking our Christmas turkey today (or tomorrow…), since it wasn’t thawed enough to cook yesterday. It was just as well, my guys were still recovering from their wonderful dinner at Grandma’s house. Last night, I warmed up some clam chowder and served it in my own homemade sour dough bread bowl — the results were appetizing.

We spent a nice quiet Christmas day at home as a family. It was refreshing. Did you celebrate Christmas at home at family or friends? Was it everything you hoped for?
